Build Each Other Up View video
Jude 1:17 - 1:25
17. But, dear friends, remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold.
18. They said to you, "In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires."
19. These are the men who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.
20. But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit.
21. Keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
22. Be merciful to those who doubt;
23. save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear--hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.
24. To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy--
25. to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
Always Be Alert (1:17–25)
Jude’s final warning reminds his readers to be on the alert for people whose ungodly behavior will seek to divide the church. Their dismissive attitude toward authoritative teaching is more than a failure to grasp biblical truth; it is a refusal to submit to the lordship of Christ. And where poor doctrine abounds, sinful behavior is sure to follow. The antidote to this threat is to build ourselves up in the faith, and pray in the Spirit. We should also be merciful to those who are lured into doubt and win them back with the love of Christ. Only God can bring us to a saving knowledge of the gospel, and only God can preserve us in the truth as we await the return of Jesus Christ. Let us stand firm, therefore, and always be alert to the dangers of false teaching and defiant behavior in our faith communities.
- How can you guard your heart against a dismissive attitude toward God’s Word? What are you doing to build up fellow believers in the faith?
A Letter to God
Intercede Together: Angola

Capital: Luanda
Population: 34.8 million
Major Religions: Roman Catholic 41%, Evangelical 38%

Angola has gone through decades of civil war that have left the nation deeply wounded, divided, and in poverty. Its first president, Agostinho Neto, held Marxist ideologies and was critical of religion, especially the Roman Catholic Church which was seen as an instrument of colonialism. In spite of this, Christianity grew exponentially in Angola from 1990 to 2010. After this growth spurt, churches in Angola have had to fight intense spiritual battles against false doctrines, animistic beliefs, and Islamic growth.

Prayer Points:
• Pray for the church in Angola to discern what is truth and live by it.
• Praise God for the Angolan church’s exponential growth during persecution.
