DEVO 10.21.22


“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 Timothy‬ ‭6‬:‭12‬ ‭NIV‬‬)


- The Apostle Paul tells Timothy to “Fight the Good fight of faith.”

- It’s a “Good Fight” not a “Bad Fight”

- A good fight is one that you are equipped to win!

- Today, we need to grab ahold of these instructions as if they were given to us, today.

- We can’t sit back and relax and just wait for the return of the Lord to come.

- We must fight!

- The Christian life is a spiritual battle!

- Eph. 6:12 says, “We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

- ‭‭Your battle is not a fight against any person, it’s a Spiritual battle.

- That is why we are shown the armor of God, in Ephesians 6.

- You fight spiritual with spiritual!

- We are to flee from the “Love of money”

- Notice, I didn’t say “money”, but, “The love of money”. There’s a big difference.

- 1 Timothy 6:11 shows us that the way that we fight is by pursuing “righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.”

- ‭‭So, ask yourself today, “Are my motives and intentions Godly, righteous and full of faith and love?”

- Are my words Pure?

- Is my thought life and actions full of faith?

- “Are you gentle or are you harsh?”

- This is how you take hold of eternal life!

- He says, this is what you were called to!

- This is the calling of God on your life!

- You are called to chase after the righteous Life that God has set before you!

- Today, throw away everything that is impure and grab ahold of the righteous, pure life that God has for you!

- God bless you! Have a great weekend!
