The quest for truth is getting more and more difficult. We live in an era that inundates us with information. How tempting it is to become exasperated and exclaim, “Information Overload! Enough is enough!” Or perhaps it is tempting to stereotype, or take another person’s analysis as our own. But in shutting out or simplifying issues, we run the risk of speaking “abusively against whatever (we) do not understand.” We need to learn to think critically in order to glean the truth and leave the rest. But How?
The Son Of God Keeping Us Safe! Book Of Jude
The book of Jude– written for a time not unlike today, where truth is hidden and false teachers abound—encourages us to ground ourselves in faith and prayer. For it is God who guides us into truth (Psalm 25:5) and who reveals His truth In His Son Jesus (John 1:17) and in His Word, which is truth (John 17:17).
Jude 1:11 Woe to them! They have taken the way of Cain; they have rushed for profit into Balaam’s error.
Jude is a personal letter to one or more of the congregations dispersed throughout the Roman Empire. The dangers facing the church at this time are not of outright persecution but of heretics and distorters of the faith. Although Jude is eager to write about salvation, he must instead warn his readers about immoral men who are perverting God’s Grace. The letter advises believers to strengthen their relationship to God with prayer and mutual support.
Take my life and Let It be!
I am convinced that God’s Holy Spirit orchestrates our lives to touch others—strangers, friends, work related people, service—industry workers and more—if we would just open up and be ourselves.
Be free to be in love with Jesus in front of people. Be an ambassador through whom He can introduce Himself.
There is a world out there hungry and searching for Jesus and His love.
Don’t keep Him to yourself.
Would you reject a friendly, caring individual, especially if you happened to be needy, hurting, lonely, dissatisfied with life—or actually searching for God?
24: To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before HIS glorious presence without fault and with great joy.
25: To the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ Our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
