1 Timothy 6:12
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.
The Christian life is full of joy and purpose, but it isn’t easy. The more you grow to love the Lord, the more you want to serve Him, which means battling against your own nature. Against pride, selfishness, laziness, greed, and temptation: all things that our “flesh” tends toward. To fight the good fight of faith is to fight yourself, and to chase the version of you that looks more like Christ. You know that eternal life with God awaits you, so live every day of this temporary life for the Lord, doing good works and playing your part in His story.
