Jude (Program #4) – Charges to the Believers (2)
The short epistle of Jude concludes with a marvelous charge to the believers. A charge that includes, “…building up yourselves upon your most holy faith,” and “praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God,” of course the Father, “awaiting the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ“, the Son.
The result or issue of this four fold charge is that it will be unto eternal life. Actually some consideration of this passage may give raise to a very meaningful question. Is this really a formula for how to receive the eternal life? Or rather is it a charge to those who already possessed the eternal life, is that how they should have their daily living in the eternal life that they already received? A profound question.
