In times like these when it somehow becomes easy to let go of God or to make excuses for sin, I encourage you to contend for the faith. If you have forgotten about or have never come across the word in the scriptures, contend means to maintain something. The word also has a sense of “fighting for a thing.”
In Jude 1:3 (KJV) we see “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.”
In this scripture we are encouraged to maintain or fight to keep our walk and faith in the Lord. So don’t let circumstances, people, the cares of this life, or even Satan himself provoke you into dropping the best component we have in our lives now or in the life to come.
My brother and my sister keep Jesus in your life. Fight on!
