“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses” (1 Timothy 6:12).

If you believe, you will stand your ground against those who do not believe.  To fight the good fight of faith is not to be hostile, but to stand firm and not budge when it comes to living in the truth which has been revealed to you.  In this day of wishy-washy whatever, it is important that those who believe be a witness of what they truly believe.  Take hold of the eternal life which is already yours in Christ.

Lord, these words sound so simple, but I see them being practiced more by those who believe in their political cause.  How easy it is to do nothing and sometimes how hard it is to just refuse to budge when it comes to the truth.  Help me to be one who lives this life of faith You have given me and not be one who shrugs it off most of the time.  Lead me Lord in the way You know I need to go so that I may live out my good profession of faith.

Lord Jesus, You have given me the words of eternal life.  Help me now and always to abide humbly in You knowing that You empower my life of faith.  Help me to be bold in the Christ-life and willing to fight the good fight of faith.  Teach me how to be consistent and firm in conviction and yet remain loving and approachable.  Guide me in the way You know I need to go.  Amen.
