God is Serious (Jude 1:5-7)

Tony FelichTony Felich, June 20, 2004
Part of the Exposition of Jude series, preached at a Morning Worship service

No one should presume upon’s God’s grace. The terror of God’s judgement reminds us that our God is serious about sin.

Jude gives us three examples of testing God’s grace.

I. The unbelieving Israelites (5)

II. The prideful and rebellious Angels (6)

III. The sexually immoral inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah (7)

Why does Jude refer to these particular sins?

What if I struggle with these sins?

What is the place of Christ in all of this?

Jude 1:5-7

Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day— just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. (ESV)
