The Seven Commands of Jude

In The Passion's introduction to the book of Jude there is a summary of the seven commands Jude gives at the end of his letter. They are,

(1) Keep building up your inner life on the foundation of faith. 

(2) Pray in the Holy Spirit. 

(3) Fasten your life to the love of God. 

(4) Receive more mercy from our Lord Jesus Christ. 

(5) Have compassion on the wavering. 

(6) Save the lost. 

(7) Hate any compromise that will stain your life. 

It’s when you live the truth of the gospel that you are sure to defend and contend for it most effectively.

My four books are:

Deconstructing Progressive Christianity.

Leading the Presence-Driven Church

Praying: Reflections on 40 Years of Solitary Conversations with God.

Encounters With the Holy Spirit (Co-edited with Janice Trigg)
