a study on the word ~stand~ part 10
Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to PRESENT you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, Jude 24
This is the only scripture that uses the same word that means stand, but here it is translated PRESENT. How wonderful it is to think that Jesus is able to keep us from falling…to keep us STANDING…and to STAND us before the presence of the Almighty Father with exceeding joy. What a delight to think of our Savior as being exceedingly joyful in what He has done for us.
When I think of PRESENT I also think of this scripture:
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye PRESENT your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:1-2
