December 14, 2017: SOAP #2933:  Hebrews 12-13; Jude

Scripture:  Jude (NIV) 1:24 To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy"25 to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and for evermore! Amen.

Observation:   This passage brings to my mind pictures of a grand ball or state dinner where each guest is announced as they enter.

As those redeemed by His blood enter before the throne in heaven, the Darling of Heaven will say to the Glorious Father seated on the throne, 'Holy Father, it gives me great joy to present _______ ______, once a slave to sin, but redeemed by my sacrifice, now Your Son/Daughter, filled with Your Holy Spirit.'

Application:   To be presented to the Father by Jesus with great joy"that will make all the trials worth the suffering!   What a day that will be!

Prayer:     Holy Spirit, help me live a life worthy of what is ahead!   Amen
