Sunday Text: Jude verses 8-10
8 Yet in like manner these people also, relying on their dreams, defile the flesh, reject authority, and blaspheme the glorious ones.
9 But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, was disputing about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a blasphemous judgment, but said, “The Lord rebuke you.”
10 But these people blaspheme all that they do not understand, and they are destroyed by all that they, like unreasoning animals, understand instinctively.
When Jude says in like manner, he is referring to the previous examples of:
___________________________________ (Jude v. 5)
___________________________________ (Jude v. 6)
___________________________________ (Jude v. 7)
These people rely on their own ____________________ instead of trusting in God and His plans. Michael on the other hand, fully followed the will of ____________________ when battling with Satan.
What is the instinct of a fallen, sinful human?

How is that counter to the servant of God?

If you are a new creation in Christ Jesus, what is your instinct?

Principle: Prioritizing the Word
If God is in control and He tells us to submit to authority, where is the line between our submission in obeying God and our disobedience to His other commands?

Will God ever give man instructions or reveal things that are counter to His word given to us in the Bible?

God is perfect and unchanging. His will is eternal. His Word is without error. What does this mean to an ever changing culture?

In the example of the archangel Michael, what can we rely on in our struggles and daily lives?

How can your family better understand the will of God?
