A Good Warfare
1 Timothy 1:18 KJV
This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare
In military conquest and times of war, there are several forms of war fought in different ways. The war waged on land is different from those waged on air and in the sea. For each kind of warfare, the principles of attaining victory are different.
We see that here in our text. Paul admonishes Timothy that he should war a good warfare. So we’re called to war a good warfare. To war a good warfare depends on how the war is waged and our weapons of warfare. Those are the equipment’s that ensure we fight a good warfare. Paul also tells us how we should fight this war. We are to fight according to the prophecies that have gone before us. 2 Peter 1:19 makes us understand that “we have also a more sure word of prophecy”. This is talking about the Word of God. We are to equip ourselves with His Word, and it is only in utilizing The Word that we will be able to fight a good warfare. So it is only with the Word of God which is the Sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17) that we will be able to fight a good warfare. So dear believer, equip yourself. Study to show yourself approved in all things.
Thank you Lord for your Word that enables me to stand in faith and fight a good warfare
