DEVO. 07.27.23

“Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people.” ‭‭)Jude‬ ‭1:3‬ ‭NIV‬‬)

- Contend!

- This is a Greek Word, “epagonizomai”. It means to struggle or to be under great stress

- Your faith, can’t be a casual “walk in the park”

- You really do have an enemy, Satan.

- And if you are not contending for your faith, your enemy will be contending for it and for you.

- He is currently contending to pull you away from Christ.

- You will have doubts

- You will face fears

- It is an all out war.

- You can’t have a watered down Faith.

- You can’t have a mixture of compromise.

- You are a contender!

- You must realize “Who you are” and “What you have”

- Even if it is costly, and it most definitely will be, you must exert yourself in defense of truth and God’s Word!

- You must stand for truth, purity and holiness!

- You may not be popular but with all the resistance, you have to see yourself as “more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” (Romans‬ ‭8:37‬ )‬‬

- When you stand for truth, Truth comes along and backs you up!

- Truth is a person!

- Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” (John‬ ‭14:6‬)

- He is not a concept, He is a person!

- And when you contend for the faith, you are contending for Jesus.

- When you contend for Him, He will contend for you!

- Jude 1:3 says that this is “Entrusted to God’s holy people.”

- Jesus is trusting that you will be a contender!

- He has trusted you with this responsibility!

- So today, Contend for your faith!

- Fight for it!

- Have a great Thursday!
