Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 01/17/16

This week’s scripture is from Jude:

Jesus Christ 3“Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people.”   (Jude 1:3)

If you are a child of God, if you belong to Christ and believe on Him as your Lord and Savior, then you will be opposed by the world, the flesh, and the devil. Yet in this, let us not despair, but let us armor ourselves in Christ and contend for the faith that He has set before us. Enrich yourself in the Word of God and let it strengthen you in heart and mind.

Then take up the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and use it to strike boldly against that which comes against you. Pray and sing out praises to the Lord as you move against the enemy of your soul. He will flee. Share your witness of what Jesus Christ has done for you and what He continues to do. Stand with Christ; and stand in the gap, for Christ is forever victorious.

May the Lord embolden you to share Christ and to contend for the faith.
