But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen. (Jude 1:20-25)
Today's Morsel: Talking with a pastor friend of mine, he was sharing with me how because of his health that his neighbors now come over and ensure that their trash is taken out and that their trash cans are returned after they are emptied. To me, that's what true compassion is all about, helping someone else with their trash. You see, so many folks have so much trash in their lives that they don't know where to turn for help or how to get rid of it. But Jude lets us know that we must have compassion, making a difference in others lives: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. If you think of all the trash that Jesus has helped you with, you should be willing to help someone else get theirs out too. Have you taught a Bible study lately?
Sing: Thank you Lord for saving my soul. Thank you Lord for making me whole. Thank you Lord for giving to me, Thy Great Salvation, so rich and free.
