20. Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us,

21. to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.

Conclusion
  • For us to enjoy the blessings promised to the faithful, we must heed Jude's call…
  • To remember the words spoken before – Jude 17 (To know there is danger of apostasy)
  • To build ourselves up on our most holy faith – Jude 20
  • To pray in the Holy Spirit – Jude 20
  • To keep ourselves in the love of God – Jude 21
  • To look for the mercy of our Lord Jesus unto eternal life – Jude 21
  • To extend mercy (compassion) to those in danger – Jude 21

...For only then will it be true that we

heeded the exhortation “to contend

earnestly for the faith which was

once for all delivered to the saints”

and stand before God

“blameless with great joy!”
