In Your Bible: Jude 25
After Jude discloses many challenges that the unfaithful bring into the church, he encourages the faithful to remain steadfast in what they’ve been taught. He affirms God cares for true believers all the time. Jude closes his letter with powerful words of praise. Look upward to the God of glory and seek his face.
To God our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory, majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen (Jude 25 New King James). When we acknowledge these wonderful truths about God, we glorify God. We must recognize and declare it. Selah.
Jude also does an amazing job communicating the greatness of God too.
- Yes, our only Savior
- The only Wise One
- Look and see his glory and majesty
- He has dominion and awesome power
- Now and forevermore
Interestingly, the words now and forevermore, could also be translated “unto all ages” which is eternity. Indeed our victory and triumph is in God forever.
This doxology reveals God’s glory and our destiny in him. If we keep connected we cannot fall. Believers do not have to slink shamefully into the presence of God. We are presented to him with exceeding JOY! Look upward to the God of glory and seek his face.
Prayer: Father, what a wonder you are, Savior, Wise One, Awesome One. Glorious One, you are Messiah.
