Garde Bien … the great Amen!

To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
Jude 24-25

This week, in Jude, I have been amazed at the ways of God, at the sensitivity of Jude, at the words of love and mercy, at the hope we share, at the timeless relevancy. And now Jude’s doxology reverberates deep down in the soul. It is pure icing on the cake. I am reminded, ladies, that studying God is not an end in itself. It is the doorway to worship.

So let us worship: God, You are able. You are so able. Amen!

Lord, we know the folks in the time of Jude were being bombarded by raw immorality and outright denial of Jesus as Lord. So are we. They were in danger of falling into sin. So are we. But You God are able to keep us from falling. Even when we’re being blindsided and don’t know it, You are able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). We will enter into Your glorious presence at the end of time perfect, without fault in Your eyes. As we build ourselves up in the faith, we are being transformed into (Jesus’) likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the LORD, who is the Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:18). The joy in heaven will be grand. Amen!

You, God, are the only God! You are our Savior! Amen!

O God, we recognize that glory and majesty and power and authority belong to You alone. One day we will join the elders before the heavenly throne and say with them: “You are worthy, our Lord and God…for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being” (Revelation 4:11). Amen!

In the meantime we wait Lord Jesus. We wait, secure in Your loving arms. We wait knowing You have cut off the head of death and will one day bring us into eternal life. How great is Your mercy! We live to bring You glory. We guard, we cherish the faith.

For You Jesus, You are the Christ. You are our Lord. You were there before all ages. You are with the Father now. You will reign forevermore. Amen! And Amen! 

Garde Bien, ladies. Watch well.
