The Contender

"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." Jude 1:3 

October 2018



Titus 2:11-14 “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men. Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world; looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ; who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works…

Since June’s Fourth Sunday Sermon Meeting our nation’s been even more divided, and in the context of ‘this present darkness’, seems in the grips of unprecedented civil unrest. Space does not allow me to address your hearts as I long to do, but I ask you to muse most wisely upon the exhortation concerning 8 simple words: “that he purify unto himself a peculiar people.” In the context of this ‘hour’ in America, this must be our longing and our charge in coming days! ‘Right words are forcible words’ counseled Job to his ‘friends’. I long to write more, but must ask that you ‘labor’ in the Word, as well. I must ask you to pray for us in this overwhelming day of opportunity.
