Jude 1:22-23 (NLT)
22Show mercy to those whose faith is wavering. 23Rescue others by snatching them from the flames of judgment. There are still others to whom you need to show mercy, but be careful that you aren't contaminated by their sins.

Jude was the half brother of Jesus and the brother of James. There are some people you just yank out of sin and yet there are others you can gently lead away from sin with love. Some are so close to the fire that the only way to get them away is with a harsh rebuke. Jude finally warns us not to allow others to contaminate ourselves with their sin.

Not everyone gets a chance to take a look at the inside of an electrical nuclear reactor generation building. So when employees were given the opportunity to tour the contamination building I jumped at the chance for a tour. There were strict procedures that had to be followed. No nylon material could be worn that would attract nuclear particles. No touching of any of the areas being worked on. Rubber boots had to be worn to keep water off shoes that could contain radioactive particles. No contact with workers who could contaminate you coming out of the reactor area. All of these rules were for your own safety to prevent contamination with radioactive material, which could harm you or cause death. Jude was providing similar instructions for living, but his included not being contaminated by sin. Sin leads to harm and possible death and without Christ as savior leads to a spiritual death. It’s why Jude was telling Believers to snatch people from the flames. If you know people who do not know Christ, isn’t it time to tell them about Jesus? If you have allowed yourself to be contaminated by sin, isn’t time to ask Jesus to be washed off and cleansed? Jesus longs to help non-believer and believe alike. Pray for Jesus that he might cleanse your sin. Pray that you sins would be removed far away. Thank Jesus for His love and grace.
