Why does he fall? Jude ends his epistle-v 24- ,”Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling…” . To compound the problem, it is stated that
he falls seven times.Just three suggestions why we fall:
1. We did not watch our feet on the path. We talk, act and live carelessly and are not “sober and vigilant”(I Peter 5:8)
2. We hurry and have little mind for important details . “Ye have need of patience..” ( Hebrews 10:36). In the old tale of knights and
kings, the kingdom was lost ” all for the want of an horse shoe nail”.
3. We are not “looking unto Jesus” ( Hebrews 12:2), but rather looking unto our best interests, and so lose God’s blessings on our lives.
The good news is that a just man gets up,finds forgiveness , learns a lesson and is better for the fall because he has a warning imprinted on his heart of another temptation to be on guard against.
