In the fall of 2018, I remember reading #Jude and it was the first book I went to for answers. I’m not quite sure why that book but it began a journey through the Bible. And for every question I had, God had the answer. It was His kindness that led me to repentance. And He who lived righteous because I could not, paid my ransom, which I deserved to have to pay, and he defeated death and gave me Himself as the gift of eternal life. He created in me a clean heart, a new life In Him. My old life is dead. Praise The Lord for His Grace and His compassion and long suffering for a sinner like me.
I read in the book of Jude again last night and the highlighted passage jumped out at me. Here is more but you can read the whole book at ESV.org
5 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.
6 And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day-
7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. – Jude 1:5-7 #ESV #Bible #Truth
#Remember #Jesus is the only #hope for the world. He calls us all to repentance.
1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. – Romans 8:1 ESV
4 Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? – Romans 2:4 ESV
21 But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it-
22 the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction:
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
24 and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, Romans 3:21-24 ESV
