The Word of God
Jude 20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, awaiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.
Jude is doing his best to protect Christians from false Christians who infiltrate the fellowship of Christians. After a detailed description of these false Christians, Jude explains how to protect ourselves from them.
First of all, we must recognize and embrace the fact that it is our responsibility to keep ourselves in the love of God. This does not mean that we keep ourselves saved–members of God’s family. Rather, we have the responsibility to take the necessary steps to maintain our fellowship with God and with other Christians.
Probably just thinking about this brings to our mind areas of our walk with God that are lacking. This would be a good time to begin to fix those areas.
Tomorrow, the Lord willing, we will study the phrase, “building yourselves up on your most holy faith.”
Until then, may God help you to enjoy your life with Him.
