Fight the good fight

Posted on Posted in Challenge, Faith

                                                            … of faith!

      For whatever is born of God overcomes the world.
      And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
      1 John 5:4

Having made Jesus your Lord,
… enables you to be an overcomer.
However, something more is needed,
… for you to be that overcomer and to have that victory!
But it is not just about having faith.
James warned us,

      Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
      James 2:17

John told us that there is going to be a struggle,
James told us that it is up to us to enforce the victory,
and therefore Paul told Timothy …

      Fight the good fight of faith,
      1 Timothy 6:12

Because …

      But without faith it is impossible to please Him,
      Hebrews 11:6

So how do we do all of that?

      For in it (the gospel) the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith;
      as it is written, ‘The just shall live by faith.’
      Romans 1:17

In other words,
      Live what the Word says.
      Don’t just confess God’s Word,
      … stand by what you confess,
      live what you say you believe.
