Qualifications of a Contender
Jude 1:1-2

Round 1 – Know you are called by God the Father into a personal love relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ. This is how to become a contender.
1 John 5:9-13
Round 2 – Walk the walk and talk the talk of one who has been set apart by God. Hebrews 2:11,12
Round 3 – Remember you are a once and for all chosen champion of God! “preserved” in Jesus Christ our undefeated champion of Love! Our hope, our love, our all comes through Christ. Romans 8:31-39
Round 4 – Fight each battle knowing; you know who you are and God knows who you are and He still loves you! He freely gives His mercy to broken fighters like us! Fight the good fight! 1 Timothy 6:11-12; 2 Timothy 2:3-4
Round 5 – Guard your heart and mind with the peace of God that passes all understanding. Philippians 4:4-7
Round 6 – Don’t quit! Endure because of the love of Jesus Christ. Compare every fight with the Cross where Jesus died! That’s how much He loves you. John 15:9-17

Are you a Contender?
Have you given your life 100% to Jesus Christ?
Would you like to give your life to Jesus?
Are you walking the walk and talking the talk of one who fights the good fight for Christ?
Do you need prayer?

Scripture Memory
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:10-12
