STANDING UPON YOUR VICTORY!
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses (1 Timothy 6:12).
Apostle Paul told Timothy is beloved son in the Lord to fight the good fight of faith. This therefore means that there is a legitimate fight for every Christian. Although, Jesus Christ had already given us victory over Satan and the powers of darkness, but we need to be involved in the good fight of faith in order to maintain our victory in Christ Jesus. The fight of faith is never the fight of Satan who had been defeated on the cross; rather, it means standing upon the victory of Jesus Christ by faith and using God’s Word as your weapon of life. It also means standing upon the reality of the Word of God, claiming your rights, privileges and inheritance in Christ Jesus.
In fact, Apostle Paul expatiated this when he said in 2 Corinthians 10:4-5, “For the weapon of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” Here, Apostle Paul refers to the weapon of our warfare; which means there is indeed a fight that every Christian must be involved in.
Furthermore, Apostle Paul stated in Ephesians 6:10-11, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” Christianity is a battle of warfare but we are being admonished to stand upon our victory in Christ Jesus as we put on the whole armor of God; which are: the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God.
Daily Tip: Every Christian should be involved in the fight of faith, fully armed with the whole armor of God by standing upon Jesus Christ’s victory. Shalom!
Golden text: For 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 (Ephesians 6:12).
