Keeping Safe in God's Love
Jude 20-21, But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life. In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God’s love.
The Book of Jude is the last epistle (letter) before the book of Revelation. Jude spoke about many perils and deceptive people/circumstances occurring in both his day and the future (our day.)
Notice the instructions at the conclusion of his letter, which are as relevant today as ever.
1. Build your faith through praying in and through the Holy Spirit.
2. Trust the mercy of Christ to cover shortcomings.
3. Live in the power of eternal life (which you received at the New Birth and will carry you forward and protect you against forces of defeat and darkness).
4. Living in this faith and grace will keep you safe in God's love.
