THE LORD’S PRAYER
ANTHEM UMH 605 “Wash O God Our Sons and Daughters”
SCRIPTURE AND SERMON Rev. Steve
The Urgency of Responsibility | Jude 1:1-25
1). Don’t let anyone get between you and Jesus.
17) But you must remember, beloved, the predictions of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ.
18) They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly passions.”
19) It is these who cause divisions, worldly people, devoid of the Spirit
2). Don’t let anything get between you and Spiritual Discipline.
20) But you, beloved, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit.
21) Keep yourselves in the love of God
3). Don’t let anything get between you and a Life of Mercy.
21) Keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life.
22) And have mercy on those who doubt;
23) save others by snatching them out of the fire, to others show mercy with fear … hating even the garment stained by the flesh.
24) Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy —
25) to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever! Amen.
