Jude 3: “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 that was once delivered unto the saints.”
It is needful for we who belong to Jesus Christ to contend for the “Faith once delivered unto the saints,” today! How do we “contend?” By boldly declaring that Jesus Christ is Lord! By declaring that He is our Sovereign! By believing that He has conquered Satan, and that we are “more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:37). “Lifted up was He to die, It is finished was His cry, now in heaven exalted high, hallelujah, what a Savior!” (Philip P. Bliss)
The bold declaration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the giving of our lives to do kind deeds in Jesus’ Name, will bring spiritual revival to the Church, and bring God’s chosen out of the “Kingdom of Darkness,” into the “Kingdom of the Son of His love.” Believe it!
O God, our Father, our Savior, our Comforter: Give us grace and faith to believe your Holy Word today; that Your Word will not return to You void, but will accomplish what You please. And, may it please You, Sovereign Lord, to revive your Church, for the sake of Jesus Christ, and His elect. We ask it in His Holy Name, Amen!
