“And have compassion on some, who are doubting” – Jude 22
Jude wants us to elicit an emotional response from his readers. He wants us to graphically see and understand the seriousness of believers who have backslidden into a life of sin and disobedience. He wants us to “feel” for these critically ill spiritual patients.
Because Jude uses the word “compassion.” he is telling us that the spiritual condition of a backslidden believer is just as real and serious as the plight of a starving child, a dying man, or a destitute family.
When genuine compassion begins to flow from your heart, you cannot sit idly by and simply feel sorry about a persons situation. Real compassion says, “I have to get up and do something about this.”
If you will allow the love of God flow through you, it won’t be long until compassion for these erring believers begins to flow from you to them. Then you will be compelled to see them from their bondage.
If you know people who fit this description, it’s time to let the supernatural compassion of Jesus Christ begin to flow out of your heart toward them. By releasing a flow of this powerful force toward them, you could set in motion the very deliverance these individuals need from the power of darkness that binds their souls and keeps them in deception.
