Jude writes to warn the people of God not to be led astray by the many false teachers and worldly influences within the Church. He warns them by explaining how those in the past who had once been under God’s blessing had fallen away. Those in the church are not to be like them. It is a fearful warning and leads us to tremble. How shall we succeed where these others failed? The answer that gives us hope comes as a Doxology at the very end of his letter.
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)
