  1. called, beloved and kept!

    • Amen, amen and amen! 🙂 The kept part brings 2 verses from Jude to mind: “kept by (or “for”/”in”) Jesus Christ” (verse 1) and “keep yourselves in God’s love” (verse 21). We are kept by Christ (His work of sovereignty and grace in election) and therefore we must keep ourselves in God’s love (our responsibility). Blessings, brother!

      • now we know where our peace, strength and confidence comes from – that is why we do not have fear – but power, love and a sound mind – we know we are kept and where we are kept
