Lead Astray

Calvin Kochi


11 Woe to them! For they have gone the way of Cain, and for pay they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam, and perished in the rebellion of Korah. 12 These are the men who are hidden reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you without fear, caring for themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead, uprooted Jude 1:11-12


A clear warning that there will be people who say they love the Lord and follow him, but they have hidden agendas, looking for personal satisfation and approval. cain was angry when the Lord didn't accept his sacrifice. Balaam had a donkey speak to keep him from seeking personal gain. and Korah was sucked intothe dessert sands. there are some that will come and sweet talk you, and have all the apperances of having your back.


The Word of God gives us clear warnings and great examples of people that you don't want to follow. God doen't withold information from us. He gives us examples of good and bad of people. Even fo those that love the Lordyet are doing their own thing and have people following them being poor examples of the Gospel. There are two things that this verses teach me, One is to really be careful how I lead people and that I use the word accurately.The other is to make sure I carefully watch who I follow and not be one that is easily lead astray by my own personal agendas and motives. I must be one that continues to divide the word of God accurately, because I want to be contiually changed into the image of Christ.


Thank you for remindin how important it is to lead as well as follow. As a shepherd the sheep follow and I want to make sure tha they hear the Lords vioce well.
