Matthew 16:13-20–This passage conveys a turning point in the disciples’ understanding of who Jesus is. Scott Sterner brings an important reminder that it is Jesus who builds the church and the power and truth of that fact applies to each of us.
Jude–In this letter, Jude urges the saints to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. This is done by examining those who claim to speak for God. What they say and what they do should always be compared with Scripture. Be alert!
1 Timothy 6:12; 2 Corinthians 5:7–God has called us to fight the good fight. He has given us everything we need to win the battle–the armor and the weapons. How do we access this important equipment? John Jones tells us that is done by faith.
