A Short Study of Jude 1:21

“Keep yourselves in the love of God. Looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.” (Jude 1:21)


The apostle does not here suppose that believers are their own keepers, for, he says, they are “preserved in Christ Jesus” (Jude 1:1). But having described a certain sort of men who creep in unawares among God’s saints, and turn the grace of God into lasciviousness, or charge the grace of God with lascivious effects, then describes the stability of those who have the Spirit of God. “Praying in the Holy Ghost, keep yourselves in the love of God.” That is, “by breathing after the love of God, through the unctious power of the Holy Ghost, you are enabled to discover interest in the love of God. And as the consequence thereof, ye are building up yourselves on our most holy faith,” on the precious doctrines of the gospel, “looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ,” which is discovered in those doctrines “unto eternal life.”
