November Elder Report


How many of the people you rub shoulders with at work, at church and at home would say that you are faultless?  We would never ask that question because we know the answer!

I read a devotional earlier this month called Morning and Evening written by Charles Haddon Spurgeon.  If you aren’t familiar with him, he was a preacher in the late 19th century in England.  He was known as the ‘Prince of Preachers’ and regularly spoke to crowds of over 10,000 people.

This day’s devotional was based on the following verse from Jude 24:

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

Are you a long way from ‘faultless’?  Me too.  But what a relief to know that for those of us who are painfully aware of our flaws and imperfections, we have a Savior who will not stop short of perfection.  There is great joy in knowing what awaits us, not because of our own efforts but because of a faithful Savior who loves us and has given us His promise.  We may fail, but He won’t.

Faultless?  No, not yet.  But we can absolutely trust His promise that we will be.
