Doxology (Jude 24-25)

"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

You may have heard this as a doxology at some point if you come from a church which does that sort of thing.

I just wanted to comment on how this brief verse contains so many things. First of all its a prayer and ends with "Amen". Next it contains worship and adoration speaking of God's strength in ability to "keep you from stumbling and present you blameless." Then it reminds us Jesus is God, Savior, and Lord.

Finally it worships the Lord with a call for glory, majesty, dominion, and authority - things which are already His and always will be His - to be ascribed to Him forever.

Jude was brilliant. I hope I can learn prayers as beautiful and concise so as to praise and worship my heavenly father.
