God’s Power To Keep His Promises

Mission – May 20, Jude 24-25

  1. Have you ever doubted the assurance of your salvation? Why?
  2. When this verse tells us that God is able, the greek word for “able” is dunamai, which also means “power”…it’s where we get the english word “dynamite” from. Based on this knowledge, and that God has adopted believers in Christ as His children (Gal. 4:4-7), does that give you confidence that he will keep you from falling away? Why or why not?
  3. Read through Ephesians 1:13-14 together. What is the Holy Spirit given to us as? Is that a comfort to you? Why or why not?
