Sermons on Jude
Some things like certain music styles are timeless. In this series, we will have an opportunity to reminisce and enjoy some of the Old Time classics that defined worship for a generation. One thing is for sure, the truths behind the songs are still fresh and relevant today.
As we head into the Christmas season at Revolution Church, we will be spending 3 weeks going through the book of Jude. Because we are celebrating the birth of Christ, Jude is a great book to look at. The reason is that Jude calls followers of Jesus to contend for the faith, to persevere and live differently because of what Jesus did. One of the main themes of Jude, a book that takes up one page in the Bible, is that it is easy for our culture and sin to pervert our belief. This is seen most clearly in the month of December, as we near Christmas. Followers of Jesus say Scripture calls us to be generous, to be humble, to live a pure lifestyle (which is true), but we don't always see that. We see followers of Jesus being stingy, greedy, spending thousands of dollars at Christmas. What Jude shows us is how we live shows if the gospel has changed us, if we've been truly saved. Big Idea: *We are drawn to stories with heroes and even long for one in our own life. Scripture tells us that Jesus is the hero of our story, not us.

Glorify God in His: Saving determination, Invincible happiness, Mediating kindness, Majestic Dominion, Now and Forever!
God's sovereign power and authority cover not only our salvation, but all of live. He made all things and keeps all things. Jude reminds us that God's sovereign power extends to His keeping us from stumbling, and bringing us to eternal joy in his presence. And not only is God able to keep us, but He desires and intends to keep us.
If you were to stand before God and he asked you, "Why should I let you into heaven?", how would you answer?
