Cary Cox, from Jude 17-23. Jude turns his attention away from the false teachers to give instructions for the church. What should the church do during times of scandal, attack, or suffering? It’s not a time to give up; it’s a time to grow up! A time to minister, to persevere, to build up the body of Christ!
Cary Cox, from Hebrews 3:7-19. Israel could not enter the promised land because of unbelief – God swore they would not enter his rest. The writer of Hebrews warns Christians not to repeat this mistake of hardening our hearts at God’s better word – Jesus Christ. He calls us to watch out for the poison of unbelief in the church congregation by devoting ourselves to daily ministry to our brothers and sisters in Christ!
