Don’t Be Wishy-Washy-be a Contender!


We live in the best and worst of times. We can be wishy-washy about who and what we believe or we can choose instead to contend. To contend means to:“engage in a competition or campaign in order to win or achieve something (American Heritage Dictionary).

I so recall as a young boy having my dad, (a US Army Chaplain  who served in WWII, Korea, Vietnam) take me to an American Military Cemetery in Luxembourg. All I could were acres and acres of white crosses.  Those were young men who decided to contend against Nazi Germany and all it stood for. Who and what do you contend for today?

Oh friend, be a contender. Know what your spiritually and politically believe about life. Paul, an early follower of Christ tells us in Jude 3: “I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people.

Contend for Jesus Christ, and the Kingdom of God. Contend for His Kingdom which is more and more coming upon this world.  Happy Memorial Day  Weekend.  Be a contender for Jesus Christ.

See you tomorrow in worship. Pastor John Hunsberger
