Keep Yourself In God’s Love

keep-yourself-in-gods-love-pic-5-4-17

It seems hidden away in the book of Jude but there is a verse with profound truth for every believer. Verse 21 (NASB) puts it this way: “keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.” No matter what is going on in our world or what others are saying about turbulent or end times, we need to follow the admonition of this verse. Keep yourself in the love of God. That’s pretty clear, isn’t it? So, how do you do that? How do you stay calm and confident in the middle of ‘life’? By keeping. The Greek meaning refers to guarding, holding fast, watching.

What do we keep? Ourselves in the love of God. How? By faith and His grace. We treasure His love for us and guard it. We hold fast to it (not letting go), and we watch His love work in our lives. The more you remind yourself of these truths, of His love, acceptance, the finished work of Jesus, the more you establish His love working in you.
