©2020 WF Cobb Truthbase.net DailyTruthbase.blogspot 

24 Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling 25 and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy

I. God eternal plan is for us to be faultless and blameless before Him (Eph 1:4 in love)  (now and in the future), so that we can be conformed to the image of Christ (Rm 8:29; who leads many sons to glory Heb 2:10), be holy like He is holy (1Pt 1:15 cx lust; 2:1 lay aside..crave..grow re salv), sharing in His divine nature and glory (2Pt 1:4 subj), so that His glory is seen as He judges and rewards with more glory displayed (2Thess 1:10), and His purposes in creation are fulfilled (Eph 1:4 holy-14 glory 3:10 wisdom manifested to powers above)

Lk 1:74 to grant us that we, being delivered...might serve Him w/o fear, in holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life. 

Heb 9:14 shall the blood of Christ...offered himself w/o spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Eph 4:22 put off, 23 be renewed in minds 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness

Col 1:21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies/hostile in your mind because of wicked works, yet now He has reconciled 22 thru death, to present you holy, and blameless (esp re character), and above reproach in His sight 23 IF indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard,...

Col 1:27 riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom  that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. 29 To this end I also labor, striving acc to His working which works in me mightily. (cf Heb 13:21 working in you)

1Jn 3:2 we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is 3 everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.   

Heb 13:21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in His sight, thru Jesus Christ...

1Thess 3:10 perfect what is lacking in your faith 11...increase and abound in love to one another and to all 13 so that He may establish your hearts blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all His saints 4:1 how you ought to walk and to please God; 2  know what commandments we gave you thru the Lord Jesus. will of God, your sanctification, abstain

Eph 1:4  Acc as he has chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:  5:26 sanctify/holy and cleanse by the washing of the water of the Word 27  That he might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

1Tim 1:3 charge that.. teach no other doctrine, 4...cause disputes rather than godly edification which is by faith. 5 purpose of commands is love from a pure heart, (1Pt 1 purify by obey thru HS) from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, 6 from which some, having strayed... 7 desiring to be teachers...neither understanding what they say nor the things which they affirm. 8 the law is good if one uses it lawfully...10 contrary to sound doctrine, 11 acc to the gospel of the glory of the blessed God which was committed to my trust.

II. God is able to keep us from stumbling by establishing and strengthening and guiding us as we trust/yield/obey Him

Per Jude: best way to keep from stumbling is daily dying to our will to live for God's will under the Lordship of Christ and power of HS
