Fight the Good Fight

Fight the Good Fight

Passage: 1 Timothy 6:11-16

Speaker: Pastor Stephen Palm

Series: The Blueprint for Building God’s Church

Category: Church-Life

Whether we chose to accept it or not, the Christian life is a spiritual battleground. In these remaining verses Paul challenges Timothy to “fight the good fight of the faith.” To strengthen him for battle, Timothy is reminded that he made a confession of faith in Jesus Christ, in doing so he obtained eternal life. The final and strongest charge is given in verse 13, “I charge you in the presence of God.” Timothy is to protect the whole body of truth (sound doctrine) with his life and ministry. Just as Timothy was charged to wage this war, so are we. But the final victory will come at the glorious appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ (v14). Whom God will send forth at the appointed time (Matt. 24:36).
