The scripture for today, January 24 (1/24), is Jude 1:24 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

“To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy ~ “

Yes, it is possible for Christians to fall because we have free will.  But fall from what? God is perfect, and so cannot dwell with faults and imperfection. We have faults. Romans 3:23 says everyone sins. And Romans 6:23 says the wages we earn for sinning is death. Satan was holding our souls hostage in his realm of death. But God always has wanted us to live with him. What a dilemma!

God solved our problem at great expense. His Words descended to earth in a human body so he could live the faultless life for us. Then God offered Himself to die in our place, to pay the ransom to get souls out of Satan’s death existence. Amazing. 

But God wasn’t through yet. He tricked Satan and came back to life. After that, God told the world He would consider us “without fault” vicariously through Jesus. We even today have a choice. We can enslave our souls back to Satan (“fall”) or we can grab hold of our spiritual freedom, spiritual life and hang on to it.

Deep down, who have you chosen?

WAS JESUS GOD? Atheists have always challenged this because they don’t believe in God at all.  Now Muslims are challenging it because they claim Christians are worshipping three Gods. They have managed to confuse a lot of Christians. This short book gives refreshing insights. To BUY NOW click a picture or paste this:  https://amzn.to/2FJpfUN
