Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling . . .

     (Jude 24)


There are some people attempting to make us slip, but God can keep our footing secure. God is also able to prevent us from stumbling and falling. This is no reference to a sure-footed horse that keeps itself from falling. Rather, it is the description of a Christian who is kept by God Himself from stumbling into sin and thus from falling away from Him. This verse indicates that God is active in the work of saving His own people. He is also able to keep our footing in a crumbling culture.
