He is Able

 

          Few benedictions in Scripture are more succinct and pregnant with comfort than Jude 24-25. Here is it written, “Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to God our Savior, Who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen.”

          Verse 24 names two of Jesus’ greatest blessings for any of His disciples—the prevention of apostacy in this life and the absence of blemishes in the life to come.

          The good Shepherd is able to safely guide every one of His sheep to the eternal fold when they are focused on keeping themselves in the love of God (Jude 21). What power and concern He has for those who belong to Him!

          The glorious Savior is also able to so complete His work of sanctification that every one of His redeemed ones can stand before the glorious, holy God without fault or flaw. What power He has for those who belong to Him!

          All of this is because He is able.
