Bible Passage:Jude 22-25

And have mercy on some, who are doubting; save others, snatching them out of the fire; and on some have mercy with fear, hating even the garment polluted by the flesh. Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.

*     *     *

Jude would say this much: On some have mercy, save others; that is, let your life be so shaped that it shall allow you to have compassion on those who are spiritually wretched, blind, and dumb.  Have no joy or pleasure over their lost condition, but have nothing to do with them, only pity them.  But as to those others whom you can save, snatch them from the fire, deal kindly and gently with them, as God has dealt with you.  Do not treat them harshly or rudely, but feel toward them as those caught in the fire, whom you must draw out and rescue with all care, consideration, and diligence.  If they will not permit themselves to be drawn out, we must let them go and weep over them.  Hating even the garment polluted by the flesh.  We have indeed received the Holy Spirit by faith and have been made clean, but as long as we live here, the old garment of our flesh and blood clings to us still and will not relax its hold.  This polluted garment we should strip off and draw away from as long as we live: Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.


As true as God's own Word is true
Not earth nor hell with all their crew
Against us shall prevail.
A jest and byword are they grown;
God is with us; we are His own;
Our victory cannot fail.

--
Cuda.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him
and He will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6
