Calling all Contenders

00:00 00:00

Those who have been called by God have been entrusted with the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. We can take hope as we contend for the faith because we are loved by God, and will be guarded by him until the day of glory. Today, contending is as necessary as ever, as false Christians represent a false gospel which denies Christ as Lord and gives allowance for godlessness and immorality. May God cause us to be faithful to contend, with love for the lost and love for his honor.
