Do Not Be Blind

19 December 2011 by Daniel

"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 24-25 [ESV]

I love this benediction. Who has come into the world? God has come into the world. So what? So He is able to keep His children from stumbling and to present them blameless before the presence of His glory with great joy.

In the wake of such a truth, it isn't merely fitting, but all righteousness demands that a believer so blessed ought to ascribe glory, majesty, dominion and authority to the One who not only offered such hope to men, but gave His own life to see that His promises are kept in full.

Let your meditation rest on what God sent Christ into the world to do for you. Don't stop there. Meditate on what Christ is doing right now for you, and then marvel over the fact that He has not left His love for you as some riddle, or invisible thing for you to find, but has laid it out open and evident in what He has done, and is presently doing, for you. Do not be blind, but see these things, and you will be blessed when you find yourself looking upon them.
