Weekly Recap #51 - (Part 4) Jude

Many Bible scholars think that Jude was a brother to Jesus.  
Jude believed in not allowing negative comments to destroy the church.

Jude 1:2
May God give you more and more mercy, peace and love.

Jude's letter to the early church was a warning to the members about "ungodly people" who have "wormed their way into your churches".

Jude 1:20-21
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.

Jude 1:22
And you must show mercy to those whose faith is wavering.

 Do we always do that, though....show mercy to those who fall away from their walk with the Lord and get involved in "worldly" things?  Or,...do we instead....judge them?!?
:(
 
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
