Lord, give us holy boldness to contend for the faith and the purity of your bride, the church. Don’t allow the influence of false teaching to turn us from the true gospel and salvation. Give us discernment to notice the perverted teaching and the grace to lovingly stand against it. The days approach your day of reckoning. I pray we are found ready in your precious name and powerful authority, Jesus, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.
“Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.” (Jude: 3-4 ESV)
