Contend for The Faith

  • a1qJcTq.jpg

    Jude 3-4 says, “Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.”

    There is a constant need to contend for the faith because there are constantly people creeping in perverting truth. Some who pervert the truth do so sincerely but because of a lack of knowledge they pervert truth. Others intentionally mislead others for personal gain. Yet whether sincere or intentional the result is the same: a perversion of truth that leads to punishment.

    We must continually contend for the faith so that we know truth and follow truth, and so that those we teach are hearing truth as well.
