Glory, Majesty, Dominion, and Authority Keep Us Safe for Everlasting Joy (Session IX)
What makes you think you will wake up a Christian tomorrow? Jude 24-25 teaches that God’s glory, majesty, power and authority keeps you from the beginning to end of your Christian faith. As you daily, build yourself up by faith in the work of Jesus on your behalf, pray by the Holy Spirit, and wait for God’s mercy, the Lord will preserve you for everlasting joy.
