After forgiveness, you can be “preserved” in Christ…by the keeping power of His Grace

As a servant for the Lord I often find myself thinking about God and matters that concern the people around my life. I find myself often thanking God for the miracle He performed in my heart, life, and ministry. I have a deep appreciation for God and His miracles that I’m believing Him to perform on others… as He did this preacher.

As for my personal miracle, I’m thankful for “knowing who I am and what I am in Christ”. This writer’s miracle goes further into God’s “keeping power” and how Christ “preserves” us by the power His Saving Grace! I’m a child of the King with a servants heart! I have the privilege an honor to carry His Gospel into an unbelieving world! Glory! I am a joyful and happy man because of the miracle of conversion to Christianity… where I am now preserved by His Saving Grace! Christ pulled me out of the world and His preservation keeps me from going back into it! Christ has made me glad! Christ makes me happy! I rejoice that I am a child of God kept by the power of God through faith! I find pleasure in being a Christian! The miracle of Christianity showed me that I was through with the old life 23 years ago! Living out the new life has blessed this man, this preacher, this preacher’s marriage, and fortifies this preacher’s daily walk with Christ in everyday life.

In this preservation I’ve found in Christ, I’ve learned to never compromise with the unbelieving world. In this preservation I’ve found with Christ I’ve learned that I never have to apologize for living a holy life in an unbelieving world! In this preservation I’ve found with Christ the Bible is my life experience manual (not the opinions of man); and the Holy Spirit is my guide in all practical matters of everyday living! I’m sold out to Christ and His Word of truth. I love righteous living, and I hate sin. Hallelujah, I’m preserved in the God of my Salvation!

I woke this morning (thinking about the so many people around my life) who cannot share the joy of being preserved by the Grace of God the Bible teaches. This preservation I speak of is “only” found through belief and trust in the person of Christ. Some do not “know” what it actually means to be morally changed; delivered by the power of God that’s found in the Christ; and preserved by the power of God through faith! Hear me for a moment!

Your personal forgiveness from the cross brings preservation found in Christ! Your personal forgiveness from the cross brings joy to the heart…but, your personal forgiveness is not found in “sinning religion” or “part time belief” or “wavering in and out of Christ”. Personal forgiveness only comes when you accept, believe, and trust Christ to be your Saviour and Redeemer everyday and every moment of your life. Personal forgiveness is enlightenment from the cross that brings you a holy and right life in the eyes of God. Personal forgiveness from the cross brings the life of peace and contentment that cannot be found outside of Christ. Personal forgiveness allows you to become a miracle “made” and “created” by the Christ of your personal Salvation. Personal forgiveness allows you to walk and live in the Spirit. Every day, all day, without sin and without disobedience to God! Personal forgiveness brings in a clear conscience…but your trust must always remain in Christ and His “keeping power”.

Christ will keep you…and Christ will preserve you. You can live your life with Christ… for the rest of your life! Without sin and without struggle! How? You can be preserved in Christ! Christ has “keeping power”. The power of Divine Grace (found in Christ) not only saves you…but also “keeps you” in this unbelieving world!

Here’s what the Bible says about this teaching…

1 Peter 1:5…Who are “kept by the power of God”through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

2 Thess 3:3…But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and “keep you from evil”

Jude 24…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,

1 Thess 5:23…And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be “preserved blameless” unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Jude… 1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, “to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved” in Jesus Christ, and called:

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord.

I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation.

      He throws our past sins away as far as the East is from the West. Amen? When forgiveness is found (present tense) the believers heart is clean and right…thus man can be what God wants him to be. Amen? Power for man to do right and live right is granted from God through Christ. Amen? God thus remembers our past sins no more. Amen? Christ is our propitiation. Amen? The effect Christ has upon our heart is from above. It’s called Salvation. It’s a miracle and everybody around the world needs it. Amen? I thank God for Christian Blessings as God gives us all the liberty to express the supremacy of Christ where forgiveness and preservation is found through His person, His power, and His presence. May all the readers be blessed! Amen and Amen!
