      When you go to a place like Disneyland with your children, you know where they are. You don’t leave the park and forget them, because you protect what you love.

      In the same way, God never forgets what He loves. Writing to first-century believers, Jude addressed his epistle, “to all who are called to live in the love of God the Father and the care of Jesus Christ (v. 1).” In the original language, it is in the perfect tense of which the nearest equivalent would read, “You are continually kept by Jesus Christ.” It is a continuing result of a past action.

      Whatever your difficulties may be today, you need to know that you are preserved in Christ, and that He will maintain His investment, which He purchased at the Cross. He will protect you, preserve you, and keep you.

      Yet the Bible also tells us to keep ourselves in the love of God (Jude 21 NKJV). Is this a contradiction? No. It is merely two sides of the same coin. The Bible is teaching that God will keep us, but at the same time, we must keep ourselves in His love. We don’t keep ourselves saved, but we keep ourselves safe.

      There are things we must do on a daily basis to keep ourselves in a place where God can actively bless us, and to keep ourselves away from all that is unlike Him, and those things that would drag us down spiritually.

      Attacks will come our way. Were it not for the preserving grace of God, none of us would make it. Clearly, we are preserved, protected, and kept by the power of God.

      Scripture Of The Day: "Nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 8:39
