Summing It All Up

"Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen." Jude 1:24,25

Believe it or not, this has got to be my favorite passage in the Bible.  It just screams victory, power, Providence, encouragement and safety!  What an amazing God we have -- to provide a way for us to not only leave this earth in victory, but to live in victory as well!  He can keep us from failure and self-imposed grief.  The choice is ours to trust and abide; we do not "go it alone."  He has made a way through the blood of His Son Jesus, for us to join Him, not only when our mortal bodies cease to function, but to join Him every minute of every day in His presence in prayer, in boldness and victory, as pure and holy children.  Jesus celebrates upon entering God's presence with us by His side.  Truly He is the One True God, worthy of ALL praise and honor, glory and majesty, with dominion and authority over everything that ever was, is or will be!  Praise God what comfort that brings!
