Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. (1 Tim 6:12)

Life offers ample opportunities to fight. Some people choose to fight traffic. They’re not hard to spot, honking their horns, swerving in and out of traffic, yelling obscenities at other drivers- and the list goes on.

Ironically enough, the most important battle of all is one that many ignore – the fight of faith. In this verse the Apostle Paul exhorts Timothy to fight the fight of faith. Why? Because it’s the struggle for eternal life.

But this fight is not one any of us can fight and win on our own. It’s the Lord’s battle. 2000 years ago, God sent His Son to win eternal life for us. Jesus came and paid the price for our sins at the Cross. We win, if we place our faith in Him.

Have you made the decision to fight the good fight of faith? You can do this by confessing your sins and asking Jesus Christ into your life.

Pick the right fight. Fight the good fight of faith.
