Contend For The Faith
“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 you should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.”
We are living in a time in which the precious truths concerning our God and His kingdom are being dishonored by satan and natural man. We must position ourselves to “earnestly contend” for the things of God. For one, we must know the Word of God. We cannot contend or stand up for what we don’t know. Two, we must live the Word so that we will know God by experience. We will not just have a heart full of facts, but we will have the experience to go along with it. Third, we must pray and fast. Our spirits, by the Holy Spirit must rise above the senses so that we may display the power of the Holy Spirit in ministry to the needs of mankind.
