Digging into the book of Jude
I started my “journible” in Jude this morning. Jude’s greeting is so wonderful I make it my own and pass it along to you. “To those who are the beloved of God, may mercy and peace and love be multiplied to you.”
As I was researching the author and setting of the book, I came across this summary. “Jude writes to a community that needs to take a stand for the truth. A group of false teachers has entered the church. Through false revelations, they are prompting believers to use the grace of God as license for immorality, especially of the sexual kind. Jude warns against compromising with evil. He points out that the false teachers, in their selfish actions, have rejected the authentic Jesus. Jude challenges Christians to remain firm in the faith that leads to eternal life. He encourages Christians to live as people empowered by the Holy Spirit, standing in the love of God (Jude 17–21).” Faithlife Study Bible
It is so awesome to me that God’s word is as relevant today as it was when written.
So why do I share these things with you? It keeps me accountable and is a way to proclaim His excellencies!
