FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH

Bible Text: "Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses." 1Timothy 6:12

Fight ever on... One soldier, when the fight was red, threw down his broken sword and fled. Another snatched it, won the day, with what his comrade flung away. Timothy was commanded to be different from those who lived for riches and material wealth.

He was to flee the proud arguments of those who misuse God’s Word and who suppose that we should follow God just for what we can get out of it. This challenge to leave some things and follow hard after some other things isn’t just directed to Timothy, but to everyone who would be a man [or woman] of God - as opposed to being a man of this world.

Going God’s way – against the flow of this world – won’t be easy. Therefore, Timothy had to have a soldier’s determination. E. E. Cummings American poet said “To be nobody but yourself in a world that's doing its best to make you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting.”

God calls us to be fighters, but to fight the good fight of faith – a fight where some may lose a battle here and there, but they will carry on the fight with great determination until the war is over - when we lay hold on eternal life.

Achievement is not always success, while reputed failure often is. It is honest endeavor, persistent effort to do the best possible under any and all circumstances.
