- Love is…….spotless and not hypocritical…Jude 1:10-13
10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. 11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. 12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; 13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
Thought for the week: Our Bibles teach us that obeying God is the proof of our love for Him. Our love (and hence our obedience) becomes spotted when we fellowship with people who have no concern whether or not they are honoring God. Look again at verse 12, when the people described in verses 10&11 fellowship with you (are your close friends), they become the reason your love (obedience) is spotted and not what it should be. Consider this, who in your life is causing your love for God to be spotted, they might need to get cut from your friends’ list.
