Jude 24  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 7
It is important to observe the way in which the Spirit of God speaks in the Epistles of a power that can keep us from every fall, and unblameable; so that a thought only of sin is never excusable. It is not that the flesh is not in us, but that, with the Holy Ghost acting in the new man, it is never necessary that the flesh should act or influence our life, (compare 1 Thess. 5:2222Abstain from all appearance of evil. (1 Thessalonians 5:22).) We are united to Jesus; He represents us before God, He is our righteousness. But at the same time, He who in His perfection is our righteousness is also our life. He who says, " I abide in Him," ought &so to walk as He walked.
