And now all glory to God, who is able to keep you from stumbling, and who will bring you into his glorious presence innocent of sin and with great joy.
I like the book of Jude. Well, I like all of the books (some make me blush more than others). But there is something about the books written by Jesus' brothers that I think are pretty neat. I mean, these people are related to the man. They grew up with him. They played together as kids. They ate meals with him. They gave him birthday presents. They watched him die.
I don't know, that just seems so cool to me.
We talked about the similar thing yesterday. If you are going to boast about anything, boast on God. Because all glory to God because even though he CAN keep you from stumbling, he doesn't all the time.
Like we are with our toddlers. We can keep them from stumbling while they are learning to walk if we never let them down to explore the world. We can help them, but it's better for them if we don't... and when they DO fall, we pick them up... give them love... kiss their booboos and set them down on their way again so they can stumble and make mistakes again.
We are God's kids. He can keep us from stumbling, but he doesn't necessarily to it.
God Bless you!
