MAKING A DISTINCTION

MAKING A DISTINCTION

But you, beloved,
building yourselves up on your most holy faith,
 praying in the Holy Spirit,
keep yourselves in the love of God,
looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
And on some having compassion,
 making a distinction;
but others save with fear,
pulling them out of the fire,
hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.
Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
And to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise, be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.
Amen.
Jude 20-25
