Hi, today the pastor preached on numerous passages but his main passage was Jude.
First Jude introduces himself and then he says that he was eager to write to them about the salvation that we share, but he had to warn them against the false teachers that were coming into the church. What is “the salvation that we share”? It is that we were sinners that needed a perfect sacrifice in order to be saved. Then Jesus (the son of God and God Himself) loved us so much that He died for us! Jude was eager to write and encourage them in the Gospel, which He does but He also warns them against the false teachers that had come into the church.
We are saved from our sins because Jesus died for us, but false teachers come and they do not teach the Gospel. If a church does not preach the Gospel then it is really a club, not a church and a teacher who does not teach the Gospel is a false teacher. We should try to find a church that does preach the Gospel because it is the most important thing. Jesus died for us so that we could live!
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
