Sunday Rewind (from Jude 1:1-7)

Sunday Rewind

In our study of Jude 1:1-7 this past Sunday (17 September 2023), we looked at the calling of 'Contending for the Faith' and the importance of staying true to the teachings of Jesus Christ in these days we live. We discussed the transformational power of the resurrection, witnessed by James and Jude, and how it changed their hearts and lives, and so too ours.

Here are some key takeaways from our study this past Sunday:

The Power of Resurrection: We saw the significance of the resurrection, not just as a historical event, but as a transformative power that can change hearts and lives. (Jude 1:1)

The Fullness of the Gospel: We emphasize the importance of sharing the complete message of the gospel, including sin, forgiveness, and resurrection. (Jude 1:1)

God's Unchanging Love: We discuss the permanence of God's love and His constant watch over His people. (Jude 1:1-2)

Contending for the Faith: We highlight the need for believers to be ready to defend their faith, just like a lawyer defends a case. (Jude 1:3-4)

The Deceptive Nature of False Teachings: We warn against individuals who appear to be part of the Christian community but promote ungodliness. (Jude 1:4)

Lessons from the Old Testament: We discuss examples from the Old Testament that serve as warnings against unbelief and turning away from God. (Jude 1:5-7)

The Influence of Fallen Angels: We touch on the topic of fallen angels and their influence, connecting it to biblical references of demonic beings. (Jude 1:6)

The Power of a Minority: We discuss the potential of a minority to sway a majority and the responsibility of older generations to guide the younger ones. (Jude 1:5-7)

This study is a call to action for all believers to protect and defend their faith. It's a reminder of the importance of contending for the faith with determination and unity.

We invite you to join us on this journey of faith. Let's dive into the depths of the Book of Jude together and emerge with a renewed understanding and commitment to our faith.

Stay blessed and keep contending and defending for the faith!
