The Whole Story: Church - Contending for the Faith

This weekend we begin to wind down The Whole Story series as we narrow in on the book of Jude. Jude tells us that it is necessary to protect and grow our faith because there are people who will try to destroy our beliefs. There are false teachers all around who try to distort the truth of the gospel, but we can overcome them through the power of Jesus Christ.  As we gather to learn about and glorify the Lord, we will sing of the joy we have in Christ. He is able to keep our faith strong. On our own we are helpless, but Jesus equips us to stand for truth in a world of false teachings. Jude 24-25 says, “To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy - to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.” Be encouraged this week by the words of Jude. Jesus has prepared the way and gives us hope of eternal life. It is through his grace alone we are saved. He is worthy to be praised. To God be the glory in all things.
