This Week’s Memory Verse: Jude 1:20-21 NKJV
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith,
praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God,
looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
This Week’s Message:
In this Week’s Memory Verse Jude is speaking to believers, reminding them to remain in the true faith of which they had first been taught because, he is saying, False Teachers have crept in among them, people who are not true believers, but who say they are, and who are causing many to go astray from the truth.
In this week’s verse Jude is telling true believers to build themselves up
(strengthen their belief in order to stand strong) in the most holy faith (the true faith of which they had first been taught).
He is telling them to:
- pray in the Holy Spirit
(praying in the Spirit strengthens and uplifts believers–it is also an effective tool in warfare)
- keep themselves in the love of God
( stay true to the One True God, be obedient to Him, read His word, follow His teaching, so as not be led astray by false teaching)
- look for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life
(look for the return of Christ who is our Savior and soon coming King in whom we have the hope of eternal life)
(Please take note—Jude is speaking of the Trinity here–Holy Spirit, God, Jesus Christ.)
So, this week let’s memorize this verse as a reminder to ourselves, as true believers, of what we should be doing daily.
If you would like you can Print the verse out in a card format to post to your bathroom mirror, refrigerator, car visor, or other place that would keep it in your daily vision.
It will help to remind you to memorize it as you go through your day and also could be a great tool in sharing with others who might.
