What are believers to do when confronted with false teaching? How are we to respond? Jude tells his readers that we need to remember and to build. We need to remember what the apostles foretold and build ourselves up in the faith.
Jude presented the duties of believers when dealing with apostasy.
- We are to remember that the apostles warned us regarding our struggles with apostasy.
- We are to seek to build up our faith; pray in the Holy Spirit; keep in God’s love; look for the Lord Jesus to return.
- We are to be merciful to those who are not sure what to believe.
- We are to seek to rescue those from error by the grace and truth of God.
- We are to be extremely careful lest we also experience the same corruption.
- We need to continue to praise God knowing that he is our preserver and our glorious hope.
- To God be glory, majesty, power and authority through Christ our Lord before all ages now and forever more.
