Often times the warnings in Scripture of God's righteous judgment against the ungodly can be terrifying. As Jude calls us to battle to contend for the faith we come to realize that the enemy is within the gates - not only in our midst in the church - but within our very own hearts. What, then, is our only comfort in life and in death? That we are not our own, but belong to our faithful Savior, Jesus Christ. Jesus is our only refuge, our only comfort. Jude fortifies the faith of true believers with this comfort as he calls us to contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints. Having received mercy, peace, and love from God through Christ, we offer him to those still in need of a refuge.
