fighting in our battlefields...

May 31, 2012

 1 Timothy 6:11 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.

This is not an obscure verse in the bible that no one has ever heard before; nope, this is a relatively well-known one. That being the case I often wonder why we are surprised that living the life of a believer is hard sometimes. Clearly, Paul is telling us that we are going to have to fight. The word fight automatically brings to mind other words like…strife, opponents, hardship, pain, and any number of words I could list. All of them however have one thing in common though; work, we have to work at and fight for our life in the faith. It will be a battle, and the truly amazing thing about belonging to God is that even in the midst of that battle, that “fight” we can have peace
