The Fight for Our Eternal Lives: 1 Timothy 6:12-14

December 1, 2019 Preacher: Eric Douma Series: 1 Timothy

Scripture: 1 Timothy 6:12-14

In this message taken from 1 Timothy 6:12-14 we examine how every Christian must engage in a battle for righteous living. We begin by examining what Paul means by “fighting the good fight of faith.” I underscore in this message that this “fight” to which Paul calls Timothy and all Christians is a struggle for living a righteous life before God. This means the believer must be dedicated to the word of God and the other gracious ordinances that God uses to sanctify His people such as the assembling together, the Lord’s Supper, and prayer (Acts 2:42). We also learn that believers must be disciplined in turning from sin in their daily lives. Finally, we examine the “good confession” that both Timothy and Christ Himself made. We conclude that every believer must confess Christ and must live a godly life which adorns our confession. Come and hear for yourself how Christians are to fight this “good fight of faith.”
