The Full Picture
Jude 17-25 But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ...
Jude does more than just sound the alarm and put out the warning about false teaching. He also gives us encouragement and instruction on standing strong and how we can and should help others do the same. I especially liked verses 20-21, "But you, beloved, building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life."
So what does building ourselves up and keeping ourselves in the love of God look like as we stand strong for Christ? Tami
P.S. As we start 2014 I wanted to let you know what to expect from P4. Starting Monday, January 6, our main focus will be reading through books of the Bible, passage by passage. We'll begin with 1 and 2 Timothy and then we'll likely turn to an Old Testament book. I encourage you to invite others to join P4 so they can read and learn along with us. (If you're reading this on the blog and would like to get our daily P4 email, you can sign up here.)
Powered by 4 is all about engaging God's Word and living it out--in community. So if it's encouragement you want or motivation you need, join the discussion on the P4 Blog--a place to weigh in on the daily scripture as well as share thoughts & questions. And, for a more in-depth look at Scripture, tune in to the daily Back to the Bible radio program with John Munro.
