From the Kitchen Table
Advent Day 9
But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. They said to you, “In the last time there will be scoffers, following their own ungodly passions.” It is these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit. But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. And have mercy on those who doubt; save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh. 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 1:17-25
God’s plans are in His promises. Those who get ready for God’s plans, live remembering His promises. Hold on, God does not lie. There are going to be days when it seems like everyone has forgotten God’s promises. The Bible says that those people will live devoid of the Spirit. When we don’t have the spirit, we’re left with just the skin. Get to know God’s Spirit and live in Him. Get to know God’s love and live in it. Get to know God’s mercy and live in it. Get to know God’s promises and you won’t live in man’s peril. And the Holy Spirit will live and move within us with power, purpose and pleasure, preparing us for all of God’s promises. It is amazing! Don’t forget and you won’t miss out on what God is doing.
