Packing a Punch

July 7

While Jude only had 25 verses which made the Bible cut, they were obviously important words. Think about that. At times we may only be afforded a few moments to speak to someone, but the words we have to share may be of eternal value.

Let's listen to Jude's words as if he has stopped by during one of his journeys and is sitting in our family room sharing from his heart.

But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. Verses 20-21

Lord, open the eyes of our hearts to what You have on our agenda today. Who is the person who needs to hear our voice, feel our touch, or read a word of encouragement from us? Ready us for action to make a difference to a hurting world. In Jesus' name, Amen
