How can a Christian really live as one of God’s chosen people?  How can a Christian have confidence that they will grow in grace?  How can a Christian have the hope that they may endure to the end?  It is because God is at work in the life of the believer and because He will keep them blameless.  Paul has a settled confidence that “he will surely do it.”  God has redeemed His own people from destruction, and He has promised to keep them to the end.  Do you have the kind of settled confidence that Paul displays in this passage?  Are you hopeful in the power of God to keep you and in the second coming of Jesus Christ?
