Sermons on Jude
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: *God's gracious love means He initiates a relationship with us, establishes it, seals it, and is the security for it. Next Step: *Memorize Jude 1:3 Recommended Resources: *"The Grace of God" by Andy Stanley (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0044XV5YO?ie=UTF8&tag=mywo087-20&linkCode=xm2&creativeASIN=B0044XV5YO)
Contending for the faith: The passion and priority to contend. The faith for which we contend. The people with whom we contend.
Jude's warning about false teachers
In this sermon, we look at what causes divisions within the church and how to identify those who don't love God within the local body. For the church, most times, the biggest threat to unity comes from inside the church.
