Our Beautifier And Refiner
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, (Jude 1:24 ESV)
This is a precious promise for those who desire it. Glory to God! God can keep us from stumbling and present us blameless before His presence. We do not need to fret and depend on ourselves or the flesh. By the arm of flesh no man will prevail. As long as we look up to God for grace and help and depend on Him for purity, He will polish, refine and beautify us with His magnificent, extraordinary and extravagant grace. He will present us blameless before the throne of grace and boast with us the way He boasted about Job with pride. God himself called Job “ blameless.”
Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil.” Job 1:8
May we always look up to Him who is the author and finisher of our faith. He started this work of grace in us and He will finish it and also preserve us unto His heavenly kingdom. To God be the glory!
