ACTS 12:5, Acts 25:4, Judah 1

          Jude: A Call to Persevere

17 But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold. 18 They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly esires.” 19 These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.


20 But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.


22 Be merciful to those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.[f]

If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.

[-] Response

                   Hebrews 12:28-29: 28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken,
                   let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 
                   29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”[a]


O Come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.
