#231 Seven Things About the "Good Fight"
I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number two-hundred-thirty-one of this series, Seven Things About the Good Fight.
Every Christian wants to hear the words in:
Mt 25:21 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’
Enter into the joy of your master will be the greatest words in all of eternity anyone could hear. Christians have read or heard these words recited from the Bible, but how many know what the “good fight” consist of? Paul was writing to his disciple Timothy who he had assigned to lead the church at Ephesus. Paul was charging Timothy to live a life beyond reproach and in doing so, Paul wrote the definition of the “good fight”.
Seven Things About the Good Fight:
- Finish the race by enduring in courage.
- Take hold of the eternal life by fully believing and trusting Jesus Christ.
- Make the good confession by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
- Make the confession in the presence of many witnesses by being an evangelist.
- Keep the commandment unstained by living a life of obedience.
- Keep the commandment free from approach by doing all for God and not for gain.
- Stay faithful until you see Jesus Christ by being a witness above reproach to the very end.
Begin at this moment by imagining the voice that will speak well done, good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your master. Now, go forward and fight the good fight doing all these things for the joy of your master and your soul.

1 Ti 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. 1 Ti 6:13 I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, 1 Ti 6:14 to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ…
