It may not be for silver, it may not be for gold, But by the tens of thousands the Prince of Life is sold, Sold for a godless friendship, sold for a selfish aim, Sold for a fleeting trifle; sold for an empty name.

Sold in the mart of science, sold in the seat of power, Sold at the shrine of fortune, sold in pleasure’s bower, Sold for your awful bargain none but God’s eye can see,  Ponder my soul the question; shall He be sold by thee? 

Sold! Oh God, what a moment! Stilled is conscious voice; Sold! And a weeping angel records the fatal choice, Sold! But the price accepted to a living coal shall turn, With pangs of a late repentance deep in the soul to burn.

 ~ The book of Jude is thought to have been written between 65-69 AD. Jude was most likely the Lord Jesus’ half-brother (Matthew 13:55). In his writing he said, “…there should be mockers in the last times, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit” (Jude 1:18-19).  Jude describes a group that practiced separation unto the sensual. Just as Judas sold Jesus out for 30 pieces of silver, there are those that continue to sell out Jesus for the sensual trinkets of this world – lust of the eye, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life(1 John 2:15). People sell what they do not love.

God help me to always “keep myself in the love of God”, so that I will never sell you out for the sensual! I choose to be souled out for Jesus. ~ JPS
