Earnestly Contend in the Faith

Earnestly Contend for the Faith

We can walk and talk victoriously because God revealed our victory. In victory, we then bear the fruit of the Spirit that others will know Him.

The Bible tells us to grow up or mature in the word. We cannot get satisfied with who we are or where we are. We must continually seek for learning experiences in Christ. We’re to be ever-learning and putting His word to action. The preaching of the word is to increase our knowledge but it is necessary to put the word to works. To know the truth is to know the saving grace of Jesus Christ. When the time comes, the Holy Spirit will give you what to say to defend the gospel and profess your belief with courage. The world doesn’t know what we know. We are a participant in the family and we know that in the end we are the recipients of a better story and an eternity. We have the confidence that God is still in charge of this world. Christians must keep proclaiming that God is sovereign. We have a present victory in God our Father. He will reward our steadfastness with rest and peace for our soul.

1 Corinthians 2:10-13

10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. 13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

We can talk like a victorious, overcoming Christian talks. Spirit filled, spiritual people have the Spirit’s fruit.

Galatians 5:22-23

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

This is that we will tell the world that there is a God in heaven. God is in covenant with His children and will take care of His children. This is the message that must go out to the world. God tarries because He still has some children that have not bowed to Him. He wants all to come to His saving grace.
