Only Wise God

Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and for ever. Amen.   Jude 1:24-25
 
These final two verses of the epistle of Jude form one of the most inspiring benedictions in the New Testament. Jude wanted his readers to experience the joy of their salvation and to continue to be faithful in their witness to their Only Wise God, whom he clearly identified as Jesus their Savior.
 
This is the only place in the Bible where Jesus is called by this name. The New King James Version translates this phrase as “God our Savior, who alone is wise.” Only Jesus Christ has divine wisdom. Worldly wisdom is a poor substitute for the wisdom that God promises to those who follow Him as Savior and Lord.
 
Jesus the Son, and God the Father impart wisdom to believers by several methods-through the Holy Spirit, through the counsel of fellow Christians, and through the scriptures, the written Word of God. We will never be as wise as God, who is the fount of all wisdom. But we should be growing in this gift of grace as we walk with Him during our earthly journey. James advised the readers of his epistle: “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him” (James 1:5 NIV).
 
Another name of Jesus similar in meaning to Only Wise God is Wisdom of God (1 Corinthians 1:24).
