Formula to Keep From Falling

Prayer of Praise That Keeps You From Falling Down
“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, (25) To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.” (Jude 24-25)
Our job is to minister by the word of God and demonstration of the Spirit and of power. (1 Corinthians 2:4) As God did not send Jesus into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved, we also must not condemn. To be a Christian, one must be Christ-like. It is a difficult job dealing with people, if we do not allow the Holy Spirit to direct us. When we fail to allow the Holy Spirit to lead us, we make mistakes and condemn others instead of ministering to them. To keep from falling down saints must be sanctified.

Formula for not falling
Here are the steps to keep from falling: (1) Obtain precious faith through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ (2) Allow grace and peace to be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord. (3) Receive all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Jesus, and receive his promises, and become partakers of divine nature and escape the corruption that is in the world. (4) Giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brother kindness charity. (5) Then give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall. (2 Peter 1:1-10)
{(Giving all diligence) + (Your Faith virtue) + (Knowledge of God and Our Saviour Jesus Christ) + (Temperance) + (Patience) + (Godliness) + (Brotherly Kindness) + (Charity) If you do these things, you shall never fall. (2 Peter 1:5-10)}
It is important to understand that Peter provided this teaching so we can put these things in our remembrance. You may already know these things, however have you put these things in your remembrance? (Read 2 Peter 1:12-14.) I it important to stir these things up in your mind, this will allow your remembrance of these things to affect all of your actions.
At 2 Peter 1:15, Peter says, “Moreover, I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.” James says faith without works is dead. Therefore, we must exercise our faith, stir up these things in our remembrance, acknowledge God in all of our ways, and be swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath. Surely, if we do this, we will never fall.
Therefore, in love, admonish all to not teach the way of the world the cycle of falling down and getting up, but teach the principles as outlined in the gospel. “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15)
Let us pray that the Holy Spirit will fill you with charity, compassion, faith, gentleness, hope, humility, joy, kindness, light, love, mercy, modesty, patience, peace, purity, security, serenity, tranquility, trust, understanding, and wisdom. I pray that these will be the fruits in every facet of your life. This can only occur when you have fellowship with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. John writes in 1 John 1:4, “And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.”
Let us recap. Peter wrote unto us for grace and peace to be multiplied unto us, James reminds us to let patience have her perfect work, and John shared with us how we can have fellowship with the Father and his Son Jesus Christ and experience joy to the fullest. Now I say to you: Rejoice, and again, I say rejoice. May God bless and keep you. Surely this is a true “Formula for not falling.”

I pray that you will join on this discussion as the Holy Spirit directs you.
