Jude 22-23 ” Be merciful to those who doubt; snatch others from the fire and save them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear – hating even the clothing stained by corrupt flesh.”

These words are words to live by and serve others. We all have doubts…times when our mind is divided by confusion, fear, or anxiety. But we need to give grace to others when they find themselves going through those same times of doubt…giving them Biblical encouragement not condemnation. The idea of snatching a burning stick from the fire speaks of literally plucking someone from the fire of Hell by means of the Gospel Message, thus saving them from Spiritual death. Finally, Zechariah 3:2-5 tells us about Joshua’s filthy clothes (soiled garments defiled, and stained from sin) being exchanged for clean ones…or the removal of his iniquities. Grace, mercy, and fear of God…good words to live by.
