No Small Power
Where there’s no assurance of salvation, there’s no peace. No peace means no joy. No joy results in fear-based lives. Is this the life God creates? No. Grace creates a confident soul. His love isn’t contingent on your own. Do you find such a promise hard to believe? In John 17:11 and verse 20, Jesus prays:
“Holy Father, keep them and care for them, all those you have given me, so that they will be united just as we are. I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me because of their testimony.”
Our faith will wane, our resolve waver, but we will not fall away. Jude 1 says, we are “kept by Jesus” and shielded by God’s power. And that is no small power! It’s the power of a living and ever-persistent Savior.
