Tuesday, June 10: Isaiah 10-12, Jude 1:14-25 ~ Danae

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Isaiah 10-12, Jude 1:14-25

22 And you must show mercy to those whose faith is wavering. 23 Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. Show mercy to still others, but do so with great caution, hating the sins that contaminate their lives. 

Do we feel an urgency to reach those that don’t know Christ?

I find that it’s so easy to just live & enjoy life without considering eternity. However, when I stop to consider that our days on earth are only temporary & take in the reality of heaven & hell, suddenly my perspective changes. 

The “flames of judgement” are real & one day each one will face that judgement. Just being a “good” person is not going to cut it, going to church or knowing what the bible says is not enough. Even believing there is a God does not secure your eternity, “for even the demons believe, & shudder” (James 2:19). We need to reach out to those that don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus with an urgency that’s not afraid to ask the hard questions, to step out of our comfort zone for the sake of lost souls. 

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage: Isaiah 13-15, Matthew 1
