Scripture Text: Jude 17-23
17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
21 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23 And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Overcoming Lifeís Problems
Introduction: Is life ever stressful? Do we ever experience problems and pain in life? When donít we? Life is stressful or stress-filled. We do suffer from pain and problems. I hate it just like you. What can we do about these things?
Iíve said before: The Lord is the only one who can make things right when things go wrong! He alone can lift us out of the mire of sin and into the choir of rejoicing!
I believe our text in Jude offers some insight to overcoming our pain and problems in life. We must get our spiritual eyesight tuned up or focused in the right direction. We must have:
1. A Biblical focus
2. An inward focus
Point I. We must have a Biblical focus.
V. 17 "Remember what the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ foretold."
The word of God can thoroughly equip you for life! The Word of God can help you in every area of life, if you will let it!
Church, we all have been helped and blessed by the words of others!
Thank God for those special people and helpful words.
But there is one place in life where we all can receive help to overcome lifeís problems.
The word of God can thoroughly equip you for life!
The Word of God can help you in every area of life, if you will let it!
Point II. WE MUST HAVE AN INWARD FOCUS
V. 20 "But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith...."
All of us have gone through that wanting stage in life. But seriously, havenít we found that things are just things? And that they are not lasting at all? That they are not really what gives true meaning and purpose to our lives? If it is not things that we want in life it is something that we want to do. We want to go do this or that or see this or that or experience this or that.
Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me."
