Life is a roller coaster of the ups and downs. We have joy, we have sorrow. Our hearts go out to the suffering souls of this world that desperately need the love and compassion of Jesus. They need the light of the Word to shine through the darkness of these wordly troubles.
Sin creeps in and takes over. Some people don't even know it until a friend can show them. Worse still, some people even embrace sin and even seek it out. How can we be difference-makers? Don't get pulled in to the sin of others. Don't get caught up in something you are trying to rescue someone from. At the same time, don't let fear keep you from speaking the truth in love.
"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. Be merciful to those who doubt; save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh. To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen." Jude 1:20-25
