Are you called to contend for Truth?

Durham Street Methodist Church after demolition.“He will give beauty for ashes, joy instead of mourning, praise instead of despair.” – Isaiah 61:3.

There are days when it is hard to cling to that Truth.  It seems that there is no shortage of challenges that the Body of Christ faces in these days that we are in. And there are some very hard days coming for the Church.

In fact, they’ve been coming for a long time now. Christian apathy, a lack of sound doctrinal knowledge, and an enemy who has swayed many born-again believers to “evolve” their thinking and decide that perhaps the Bible isn’t really true after all.  They’ve forgotten 2 Timothy 3:15, that all Scripture is breathed out by God.

  1. Mr Davis says:

    We will without a doubt take the word contend and warp it to hatred embellish it with zealousness. And then we end up with zealous hatred against sinners and claim we are representing Christ.

    If we hold Scripture to be true this word contend for the faith is a close examination of ourselves to the point where in our desperation we cry out to Jesus, the Lord's Christ, to cleanse us of our filth and conform us into the image of the New Man, in Christ Jesus. Such a person is brocken before God and doesn't think much of themselves at all but of God there is much to be thought of. They see themselves as reprobates, wholly unworthy of the Lord's service and they are grateful for any part they pray in the revelation of Jesus Christ to the lost and willingly and zealously pursue it.

    So it is written: In Hebrews Chapter 3

    For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God. And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;
    But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)

    Take heed , brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily , while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
