Contend for the Faith

“Contend for The Faith” Commitment

I invite you to read the following passage of scripture and pray about how God is asking you to step out in obedience and contend for the faith that Jude speaks of in Jude 3. “I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people.”

Jude 20-23 – 20 But you, dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. 22 Be merciful to those who doubt; 23 save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.

In continued prayer and reflection, review and complete the following statements.

I commit to “contend for the faith” (Jude 3) in this season alongside others from ECC in two ways.


I will specifically be a part of “building up our faith” (Share Life) by…

  • As you pray about this step of commitment. Think about “building up our faith” as…
    • A personal commitment that strengthens the body of Christ. (Not in isolation.)
    • A sacrificial commitment that builds your devotion to Jesus Christ.
    • A disciplined commitment that stretches your faith.
