“I found it necessary and was impelled to write you and urgently appeal to and exhort you to contend for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.” Jude 3
Although we have been given the measure of faith, once received we must still take action to keep it a blazed. We must cultivate and continually fight to keep our minds clear of outside forces that try to distract us from the truth of God’s word. Do not allow the daily circumstances of life to supersede and make its self to be our truth; God’s word is truth (Proverbs 30:5). Eradicate all false teachings, perversion, lawlessness, and profanity that try to rule your heart and mind. Refuse to listen to false teachings of men who pervert the grace of God, and keep your mind stayed upon Jesus who is the finisher and perfecter of your faith (Hebrews 12:2). As we live by faith and not by sight we must deliberately chose to shut down the lies of the enemy that attempts to plague our minds, and stand up and take hold of the truth. Keeping one another encouraged and strengthened to contend by faith.
