Jesus promised that His Sheep, His Followers, would be kept alive and never perish.
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand,” John 10:27–28.
The reason for this is that God works to maintain or “keep intact” the faith of the sheep.
“He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ,” Philippians 1:6.
We are not left to ourselves to fight the fight of faith. For God is at work within you, helping you want to obey Him, and then helping you do what He wants, (Philippians 2:13).
You have the assurance of God’s Word that, if you are His Child, He will “equip you with everything good that you may do His Will, working in us that which is pleasing in His Sight, through Jesus Christ,” (Hebrews 13:21).
Our endurance in faith and joy is finally and decisively in the hands of God. Yes, we must fight!
But this very fight is what God works in us. And He absolutely will do it!
It says in Romans 8:30,
“And having chosen us, he called us to come to him; and when we came, he declared us “not guilty,” filled us with Christ’s goodness, gave us right standing with himself, and promised us His Glory.”
Who then is left to condemn us?
Certainly not Jesus, the Anointed One!
For he gave his life for us, and even more than that, he has conquered death and is now risen, exalted, and enthroned by God at his right hand. So how could he possibly condemn us since he is continually praying for our triumph? (Romans 8:34).
Yes…. He keeps His Promises. Every Single One.
You have to meet Him…. To Know Him.
In His Shadow,
