Jude 1:17-25; Building up the body and avoiding division

After calling out “certain persons” who distract and divide, Jude focuses on reminding the faithful about the traits needed to build up the body in the midst of a mocking society.  Praying in the Holy Spirit, waiting for the return of the Lord, having mercy on and encouraging doubters and remembering it is the Lord who keeps us from stumbling are attitudes of guidance and protection for the body…the “called” and “beloved of God” (Jude 1:1).
