Relax, everything’s going to be all right; rest, everything’s coming together; open your hearts, love is on the way! – Jude 2 (The Message)
That’s the way Jude starts. I like it. I need it. Jude has some difficult things to talk about. He has a painful task ahead of him in writing this letter. He has some scary topics to discus that likely led to very difficult times in the lives of the early believers that he wrote to and about. Before he goes there he stands on love.
Relax, times may get tough, we may have a difficult road ahead, but love is on the way.
