Holiness

Jude 1:24 KJV

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,

Matthew 19:26 KJV

But Jesus beheld them , and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

The ultimate goal for a Christian is to live a life of holiness, which seems an impossible feat.  It is futile to depend on human strength and willpower to try and be good on our own. But it makes sense that the God who called us would make it possible. Only God is able to keep us from falling. “Holiness is not the way to Christ; Christ is the way to holiness” (James H. Aughey).

Happy Independence Day
