1 Timothy 6:12 KJV: Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
Dear Beloved friend in Christ, today’s topic admonishes you to lay hold, hold on, hold tight eternal life. Don’t give up on the word. Don’t give up on Jesus Christ for he is eternal life. For the word of God says ‘And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent’. John 17:3.
Many give up on Him at the slightest trial or temptation from the evil one. They feel it’s not working according to their expectations. Many think coming to Christ automatically removes trials from their lives. But this is not true. He rather promised us that in this life, we will have tribulations but we should cheer up for He has overcome the world. John 16:33. Meaning that the trials cannot overwhelm you or defeat you.
Therefore, no matter what comes out against you, do not let go of the eternal life which you have received. Fight on until the end.
Declare to yourself loud: I will fight the good fight of faith and hold onto eternal life. Hallelujah.
Lord Jesus, you are my strength in my faith of faith and I know I am always victorious because you are with me always. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
