Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

The Law of Entropy says things fall apart if left to themselves. Discipleship is not immune to entropy. Discipleship is about intentional building.

But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
- Jude 20,21 TNIV

Jude is written in a time of cultural pressure with every invitation to turn away from a Christ-centered lifestyle. Yet the letter is sent to "you." "But you..." Jude writes to us today that we would not be distracted from Christ, but instead, built up in Christ. Building, not distracted. Intentional against entropy, not diverted.

Yes, we know how it is "out there," but you... Be about building.
