Pastor Neli uses the Book of Jude to highlight the importance of staying out of the lake (with reference to the lake of fire and sulphur – hell). There will be many times we will go the extra mile for our loved ones. Jesus had jumped in the lake for us so we could be saved so why shouldn’t we do the same for the lost? Let us not stand back and pass judgement. Let us instead look out for the signs and respond with love and mercy.
Save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh.
– Jude 1:23 (ESV)
