Contending for our Faith!

"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 that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."
Jude 1:3-4

I've been studying the book of Jude quite a lot recently and these verses always leap out at me. I will not lie to you, the first time I read the book, I was shaking with conviction the whole time.
Contending for our faith is very hard in this day and age....the world is bound and determined to bring us as Christians down.

But....Jesus went to the cross for us.

He died and shed His precious, perfect blood so that we could be born again and not have to go to a sinner's hell. The least THE LEAST we can do, is be a witness for Him. So, CONTEND FOR YOUR FAITH!!!!
Man...I feel a preachin' spell as Daddy would say! lol!!!
