Pocket Sized Thoughts – Jude – Part 7

Now unto Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you faultless.” (v.24)

Having spent so much time on warnings against deception, it would be easy to think how could I possibly avoid such temptation; and even more impossible, how can I be perfected. But Jude clearly says that the ability to do so is God’s, not ours. If it all depended upon our wisdom, strength, or piety, we would be doomed to failure before commencement. God and God alone is able to do this wonderful and precious work. This is immensely reassuring. Furthermore, He is absolutely committed to it. Having begun His work of salvation in us, He will see it through to the end (see Philippians 1:6). This is not an irksome job that He has undertaken. He does it with unbridled joy. Yes, there are dangers and pitfalls, but as we look to Him and trust fully in Him, His sovereign power which He has invested in us, will keep us from forever stumbling. He is committed to us. Let this hope keep us committed to Him. Amen!

PRAYER :- “Lord, thank you for your faithful, powerful and unbroken commitment to me.”
