Contend for the faith
In Century One, Jude wrote, “I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints” (Letter from Jude, New Testament).
If Christ-followers were contending for the faith in the first century AD, what about us in Century Twenty-One … after two millennia of religious tradition, pagan penetration of Church beliefs and practice, speculative philosophies, and poor theology and practice?
A resurrection insurrection!
Frank Viola has a strong conviction we may be in the beginning stages of an insurgence—a resurrection insurrection within the Church to reclaim the Gospel of the Kingdom.
Take a fresh look at what Jesus said. And what he modeled as seen in the Gospels of the New Testament. It’s stunning. How have we missed this?
His life message and work was the Gospel of the Kingdom.
Not churchianity. Not a gospel of sin management. Neither legalism nor easy-believism. Not a fantastical “pie in the sky” faith.
Clearly, the fullness of the Kingdom of God is coming to the earth at Christ’s Coming. But we need to remind ourselves that it starts now. Right here. In the midst of true Christ-followers and Kingdom communities of faith.
Is your heart moving for something more? The Holy Spirit may just be trying to radicalize you!
Take the next 90 days and re-examine your faith. See what happens!
