Now to him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,…
I. THAT NOTHING LOWER THAN THE INFINITE AND EXHAUSTLESS POWER OF THE REDEEMER, IS EQUAL TO OUR PRESERVATION IN THIS WORLD OF TEMPTATION AND SIN.
II. THAT THERE IS A CERTAIN ATTITUDE AND EXERCISE OF MIND WHICH MAY BE SAID TO BE INDISPENSABLE TO OUR INSURING THIS SUSTAINING AND PERSEVERING POWER.
III. THAT THE SAVIOUR HAVING PRESERVED US HERE BY THE EXERCISE OF HIS DIVINE POWER, WILL WITH PECULIAR JOY PRESENT US HEREAFTER TO HIS FATHER IN THE POSSESSION OF A SPOTLESS AND PERFECT NATURE.
IV. THAT OUR PRESERVATION HERE, AND OUR PRESENTATION HEREAFTER, BRINGING INTO VIEW THE HIGHEST MANIFESTATIONS OF THE DIVINE PERFECTIONS AND CONDUCT, WILL THUS LAY THE BASIS FOR THE MOST SUBLIME AND SERAPHIC ASCRIPTIONS OF PRAISE.
(R. Ferguson, LL. D.)
