THURSDAY JANUARY 23,2020
TOPIC: FIGHT TO KEEP YOUR FAITH
TEXT: JUDE 1-10
MEMORY VERSE: “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” (JUDE 3).
In 2 Timothy 4:7, Apostle Paul probably gave Christians a practical example of Jude’s message in his exhortation to the saints: “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith”. Paul defended his faith in Christ by overcoming the tempter and his temptations to the end. The world today is soaked with many challenges against the faith of God’s children. Satan is busy luring the redeemed of the Lord from the narrow road that leads to heaven. False prophecies, false teachings, satanic doctrines, worldliness, pornography and immorality are samples of Satan’s baits. Failure of parents to meet the basic needs of children in school due to economic hardship has been used by Satan to lure a number of youths into cults, immoral acts and stealing.
Children of God must overcome all evils. Heaven is too precious to be compromised with anything on earth. Therefore, Jesus’ boys and girls must reject any trick of Satan to delete their names from the Book of Life. That’s the admonition of Jude the Apostle to the saints.
QUOTE: Children of God must overcome all evils.
CHALLENGE: Will you overcome?
PRAYER: Oh God! Keep me to the end.
