12/21/17 Greetings From Jude

“I, Jude, servant of our Lord and Savior Jesus, and brother of James, greet my brothers and sisters in Jesus, those who God our Heavenly Father has called to be His own, set apart and forgiven through the sacrificial death of His Son, and will keep safely in His watchful care through Jesus until the day that we are all united with Him in His Kingdom of Heaven.  May the mercy, peace, and love of God our Father grow in you all!  My brothers and sisters, I was compelled to write to you of our faith in Jesus, our Savior, and to implore you to fight daily to keep your faith strong.  We are all together in Jesus, though we may be far apart, and we share this same faith wherever we are.  We know, however, that unbelievers have snuck into our ranks with the intent to destroy the church and all the brothers and sisters in it.  These are people who, before time began, God knew would never turn to Him, and so have always been on the path to hell, showing their disdain for God and His love and grace for us by their crude behavior, their disrespect for His commandments, and their refusal to acknowledge Him as the only true God and the Father of our Lord and Savior, Jesus.”

Jude 1:1-4
