Today's Reading
Jude 17, 20b-25

The Letter of Jude is one of the Bible’s shortest books. Its author does not seem to be one of the twelve apostles but is perhaps an obscure relative of the Lord.

The author urges his readers to remain in God’s love and to be firm in their faith. The readers are to minister the mercy of God to those who may have gone astray. The author’s brief message is, “Watch out for yourselves! Watch out for false teachings!”

The Letter of Jude ends with a magnificent doxology, a burst of praise for God’s glory, a confident prayer that God will preserve his readers and achieve his purpose for them.

May God keep us all from error and bring us to Himself unblemished and exultant.
