This may be one of those rare times you get to read Jude. In this Advent reading, there were two days of reading Jude. It can actually be done in 10 minutes or less.
But in reading Jude I always have my mind blown as to how to make a few words count. Really count.
There are three small phrases in verses 20-21 that are quick to read and yet take a lifetime to implement. Jude gives three vital instructions for growing as a believer… and no “how to” manual. Just seems rude!
But here are three keys to truly growing in Christ:
- Build yourself up in the most holy faith
- Pray in the Spirit
- Wait for the mercy of Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life
Three short phrases. A lifetime of unpacking and doing.
