A key to operating from the standpoint of never stumbling or falling requires a decision.

You must be an individual who decides to "give all diligence." You need to add diligence. Diligence is merely a decision, and then the execution of that decision.

Deciding to be diligent about something starts with small things. For instance, being in church on time is just a decision about being diligent.

You may say, "But I have lots to do to get my kids there on time." Then you need to get up earlier. If that's too early, then go to the later service.

This Scripture is saying: "Add diligence to your study of God the Father. Add diligence to your study of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Add diligence to the Promises, and when you do, you will develop to a place where you will never stumble or fall." That is the goal: to be in a position where you neither stumble nor fall.

We are told to give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never stumble or fall. For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is the ultimate goal: that you receive the entrance already provided for you into the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ.

That entrance has been provided. You simply must be an individual who is diligent. Get this truth into your spirit and understand what I am saying. Decide to be diligent. It can change your life as you learn more about how to never stumble or fall. Hallelujah!
