A Promise For You From Bible Promises:
Topic: When Violence Is The Last Option. Pt Four [13/05/2017]
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 ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Jude 1:3. Read: 2 Tim 4:1-8
From generation to generation, the message of God and His only begotten Son Jesus Christ has been passed on – even to this dispensation. Many have fought vigorously and gallantly to preserve the message of the cross. Some were even killed as a result of defending their faith.
Stephen the first martyr was killed for his faith, James and John the Baptist were beheaded for their common faith. Many other disciples were also killed for their faith. Today, the killings continue in our society, the world wants nothing to do with God and His people.
Beloved, we must keep the profession of our faith to the end, we must earnestly contend for our salvation that we received the very day we gave our lives to Jesus because this is our passport to heaven. If you don’t earnestly contend for your salvation, the world will take it away from you.
The mundane things of this world will overshadow it and the science of this world will take over your faith. Like Paul, you must be able at the end to say, I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.
You must preserve the faith and pass it on to your children and unborn children. Don’t allow Jesus be taken away from you by this world because this world will pass away but those that do the will of God attract his reward here on earth and in heaven above.
* Father, help me to fight to defend my faith and my salvation to the end in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen
