“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” (1 Timothy 6:12)
“Fight the good fight” is a phrase heard and used in many times. You will often hear it used referring to the fight to do what’s right. This is a good understanding of what Paul is speaking of, and yet there is more to it. Paul is not simply asking Timothy to put up a fight for things that are good, he is calling Timothy and all believers to hold firmly to their faith no matter the cost. In short, he is telling believers to not just say you follow Jesus but to actually live it. Paul recognized the confession of those whom he was writing, and yet he is challenging them to actually live out the calling that God has given them.
Today, the same challenge remains. We aren’t called to give lip service to God but to actually serve Him. Were not called to just confess our love for Him but to show it through sharing our faith, loving others and giving to the Lord. All these things are an outpouring of God’s love in our heart.
Today, no matter what you have planned, be ready to be used of God in a mighty way. When it comes, hold tight to the faith and fight the good fight so that all the world will see Jesus in you.
“Eternal life begins by 1st choosing Christ, and then it’s a choice you make daily to surender to His will… it’s a daily choice to do what’s right“
Heavenly Father, I know that life is difficult and sometimes it can be hard for me to live out the faith that I confess. Please help me to try my very best to do what is right in Your eyes. I ask that You would give me a boldness to share my faith and love others unconditionally. Help me to see opportunities to live out Your love today and every day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Seeking Jesus in your life?
Jesus Christ says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him” (Revelation 3:20)
The Bible promises eternal life to all who receive Christ: “God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life” (1 John 5:11-13)
If you have not asked Jesus into your life you can receive Jesus Christ right now by faith through prayer.
Prayer is just talking with God. He knows your heart, so don’t worry about getting your words just right. Here is a suggested prayer to guide you:
Lord Jesus, I want to know you personally. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive you as my Saviour and Lord. Thank you for forgiving me of my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of my life. Make me the kind of person You want me to be.
If you have done this, then congratulations! (Luke 15:7) says that when one sinner accepts Jesus Christ as his or her Saviour the angels rejoice. So there’s a party going on in heaven right now over your decision! Remember this date as your “second birthday,” the day you were born into a new life in Christ! You have God’s Word that He answered your prayer.
