How horrible it is to turn God’s grace into licentiousness!

Scripture: Jude 1:1-4

ESV Text: Jude 1:1-4

KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 1 1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called: 2 Mercy unto you, and peace and love, be multiplied. 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.(KJV)

Hymn: TLH 413:
I Walk in Danger all the Way

— Organ Audio

1. I walk in danger all the way. 
The thought shall never leave me 
That Satan, who has marked his prey, 
Is plotting to deceive me. 
This foe with hidden snares 
May seize me unawares 
If e’er I fail to watch and pray. 
I walk in danger all the way. 

2. I pass through trials all the way, 
With sin and ills contending; 
In patience I must bear each day 
The cross of God’s own sending. 
Oft in adversity 
I know not where to flee; 
When storms of woe my soul dismay, 
I pass through trials all the way. 

3. Death doth pursue me all the way, 
Nowhere I rest securely; 
He comes by night, he comes by day, 
And takes his prey most surely. 
A failing breath, and I 
In death’s strong grasp may lie 
To face eternity for aye. 
Death dost pursue me all the way. 

4. I walk with angels all the way, 
They shield me and befriend me; 
All Satan’s power is held at bay 
When heavenly hosts attend me; 
They are my sure defense, 
All fear and sorrow, hence! 
Unharmed by foes, do what they may, 
I walk with angels all the way. 

5. I walk with Jesus all the way, 
His guidance never fails me; 
Within His wounds I find a stay 
When Satan’s power assails me; 
And by His footsteps led, 
My path I safely tread. 
In spite of ills that threaten may, 
I walk with Jesus all the way. 

6. My walk is heavenward all the way; 
Await my soul, the morrow, 
When thou shalt find release for aye 
From all thy sin and sorrow. 
All worldly pomp, begone! 
To heaven I now press on. 
For all the world I would not stay; 
My walk is heavenward all the way.
