Keep Contending for the Faith No Matther How Strong the Resistance - Jude 1:3

stand firm for Jesus
Are you facing increased opposition when you share Christ accurately in your workplace, neighborhood, or church?

I'm seeing increased name-calling, anger, and resistance when people share Biblical truths (especially when they talk about morality, accurate views of God, discernment, or Christian responsibility). 

And a good portion of the resistance comes from professing Christians misusing the “Judge not” argument.

God expects us to warn people of error even if they don’t listen (Ezekiel 33:1-20). He’s “nit-picky” about His Word (Matthew 5:18).

But just like the Old Testament prophet Jeremiah we can be hurt by the insults from the people we’re trying to help (Jeremiah 20:8-9). 

So today, I want to give a shout out to those of you who are contending for the faith, teaching Christian responsibility, standing for God’s morals against a growing wave of compromise (Jude 1:3).

 Never forget: “Great is your reward in heaven” (Matthew 5:10-12).

  1. Hi Gail, great encouragement here. It is getting tougher out there and people are getting more "in your face" about their feelings (or maybe their guilt?). Yes, we must keep on keeping on for Christ
    God bless
