For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord. [Jude 4]
It seemed that some people in the early church were treating God’s grace as a license for immoral living. God in His grace forgives our sins, but when Jesus shed His blood for us, it was for us to die to sin, not dwell in sin. His grace is not meant for us to lead lascivious lives. By turning His grace into a license for immoral living, those people were taking His blood very lightly! Jude said such people were marked out for condemnation, and they had also denied Jesus. That only meant one outcome for them.
