Him Who Keeps Us From Falling


“Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of His glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen” Jude 24-25

Jude both starts and ends his letter with the declaration of this foundational truth: God will keep those who are His from falling away. He concludes his letter with one of the most beautiful doxologies found in the Bible.

A Doxology is a short hymn of praise to God that is often used at the end of a letter or sermon. The word doxology is from the Greek word doxa, which means glory. And so a doxology is a refrain or a hymn of praise that exalts the glory and majesty of God. Jude’s doxology praises God for His power and faithfulness to keep those who are His from falling from the faith.

We praise God because He is the one who keeps us from falling. God is powerful and He is fully able to keep us regardless of what we face. We praise God because He is the one who will make us stand. This is a reality that should leave us in awe – that through Christ we would be made able to enter and to stand in the presence of the glory of God.

Glory is the honor rightly ascribed to God for who He is and what He has done. It is the outshining of His character and nature. Majesty is the greatness of God and reminds us of His rule as king over all. Dominion (or power) is God’s right to rule with authority forever. There has never been and there will never be a time when God is not deserving of all praise.

Join the psalmist declaring, "My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long" [Psalm 71:8].

Much love and care, Pastor Pat
