Jude 1

Text

Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and brother of James,
To those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ:

Observation/ Meaning

Jude calls himself a servant of Christ, an identity we should resonate with. The greek work “doulos” is better translated as “slave” and it denotes ownership – Christ has ownership over Jude, and Jude rejoices in him being owned by Christ. This relationship is made only possible by Christ who “calls” Jude and in extension, us today.

Application

As a believer, how do you feel about being chosen and called by Christ and bought by His blood?

My Reflection: “Even though I have been purchased by the Lord Jesus Christ and am secure for eternity, I find myself burdened by the things of this world far too often. I pray that You help me stay focused on You and understand the significance of what You have done for me on the cross. This Christmas, we celebrate His incarnation to carry out His mission.”

How about you?

I utilize the COMA method in my Bible Studies.
