"On Being Valiant for Truth" by Daniel E. Wray - Sun May 15, 2005 4:38 PM
Since it is through the truth that Believers are sanctified [Jn 17.17], and it is for not receiving the ‘love of the truth’ that men perish [II Thess 2.10], one would hope that all Christians would be valiant for the truth. Yet it seems that every age must bemoan the dearth of warriors who will ‘earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints’ [Jude 3]. The Holy Spirit exhorts us to ‘Buy the truth, and sell it not . . .’ [Prov 23.23]. Christians in general are told that they should ‘... stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the Gospel’ [Phil 1.27]. An elder in particular must be ‘Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.’ [Titus 1.9].
In this new article, Daniel Wray explains why Christians should boldly contend for the faith, but also how we should go about preparing ourselves and practically do that. So often we hear people exhort believers to be an active in "winning souls for Christ", but how many who heed that call are doing so according to biblical principles?
