This Sunday's message: The Song of Zechariah

March 13

Today's Reading: Jude 1:1-25

Today, we're not only reading a chapter, but an entire book of the Bible!

This book certainly contains some interesting and unusual references to events that just aren't recorded anywhere else in the Bible and we could easily get sidetracked by focusing on them. (And if you're interested in digging into any of those events further I'd be happy to discuss them with you.) But we're going to focus on verse 5 today:

Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.

We have here a explicit reference to the pre-existence of Jesus and Jude is clearly stating that Jesus is God. While the Israelites were saved from slavery in Egypt, many of them refused to believe in God and were later destroyed in the wilderness.  We are reminded here that those who refuse to put their faith in Jesus despite the evidence that He is God in the flesh will one day be judged for that unbelief. Have you put your faith in Jesus?
