Do You Smell Smoke?

Do You Smell Smoke?

Since its discovery, fire has fascinated man. It is both calming and terrifying. It’s always easy to spot someone who has been near a fire because they smell like smoke. There are good fires and there are bad fires. Some warm us and cook our food, others stand as a warning. Jude tells us that there are people so close to the fire that we are to snatch them before they get close enough to be destroyed. In his little book, Jude has been giving us a picture of the false teachers of his day. Now, in verse 20, he turns to his main point. Those that recognize the danger, have a responsible to snatch people from the fire. In this message we ask, “Do You Smell Smoke?”.

From Series: "The Bad Apple Series"

This little book of 1 chapter, just 25 verses addresses a timely problem, the danger of corruption. The church is created to be “the ground and pillar of the truth”, so it is easy to understand why it is a prime target of misinformation. Just as one bad apple spoils the whole bunch, corruption has the diabolic ability to spread rapidly. Jude calls us to contend for the faith once delivered to the saints. His message has massive application for the times we live in.
