Text: Jude 3-4; Gen. 2:15-16 We have a responsiblity to stand for the truth of God's word. Today we are seeing Christaians fail in their mission to uphold the truth. In the book of Jude we see where we are commanded to contend earnestly for the faith. We need to be ready to give an account for the hope in us because we have a responsibility to hand down the truth of God's word.
2 Timothy 2:2; Phil. 2:1-5 Listen as Dean Self brings us a message from God's word. Dean challenges us to be a mentor to others as well as to be willing to be mentored by others. "Commit these things to faithful men."
