Fight That Good Fight of Faith
1 Timothy 6:12 – Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have declared so well before many witnesses.
This is a major fight in the body of Christ, well it has been and would always be a major fight for believers all over to world, and it’s the fight for the faith, a fight to ensure that the message about Jesus we received from the start, that message that saved us remains preserved.
Like I said earlier it’s a fight to ensure that the truth about Jesus remains taught. It’s not a physical fight, so don’t go acquiring weapons, or hating those who are not believers, I mean the battle is not physical; instead, focus on ensuring that accurate teaching about Jesus is a norm.
1 Timothy 6:3-5
Some people may contradict our teaching, but these are the wholesome teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. These teachings promote a godly life
Anyone who teaches something different is arrogant and lacks understanding. Such a person has an unhealthy desire to quibble over the meaning of words. This stirs up arguments ending in jealousy, division, slander, and evil suspicions
These people always cause trouble. Their minds are corrupt, and they have turned their backs on the truth. To them, a show of godliness is just a way to become wealthy
In earlier verses, Apostle Paul was speaking about how some people would want to contradict right teaching, it happened then and it still happens today, hence the instruction to fight the good fight of faith. From scripture, you know the truth, you know what is and what is not true, so we fight by putting right teaching forward, remember this fight is not physical, so we don’t use physical means, such as arguments or even physical combat, we use supernatural means, we pray for understanding, and we teach the wholesome and true message about Christ.
This fight is for all believers, so let’s fight it, it’s a good fight, not all fights are good, it’s a privilege to be fighting a good fight, so like Timothy, let’s fight this fight.
2 Timothy 4:2 – Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching
Endeavour to read and share preachdigest daily, it’ll help you grow and equip you to be able to fight this good fight of faith, God bless you.
Lord Jesus, teach me to keep on growing in you and to be able to teach others as well, so that I can fight the good fight of faith, amen
