Hello Everyone,
 
Fight, yes, fight the good fight! Media reports heralding the downward curve of COVID can lure us into a false sense of security where we rest on our laurels and let our guards down. But we must continue to fight. This physical reality also highlights a spiritual reality; a parallel track we travel on in our journey of faith that calls us to fight the good fight. 1 Timothy 6:11-12 calls us to fight the good fight and to exchange the riches of this world for the riches of eternity.
 
To fight assumes something is worthy of the fight; that something valuable is at stake. We notice two words that call us to battle and one word that secures the battle. The first word is ‘pursue’; to go after godliness and godly character (that’s valuable and worth fighting for). The second word is ‘fight’; to offensively engage in the battle and to stare down it’s barrel in the might of Jesus and all He has invested in us. Both words are action words but also faith words. The word that secures us in this battle is our ‘eternal life’. It is a sealed position of victory. Our role is to co-labour with God, in engaging the fight, always knowing our victory is secure because of Him. To fight means we intentionally keep our guard up, continuously laying hold of Jesus.
 
We have an enemy who is a strategic player, who prepares a precise, targeted assault. If our guards are down, we are vulnerable to these attacks. But, remember, to fight the good fight is to shift the victory curve in our favour.
 
So, friends, get your fight on today. The band Unspoken reminds us to fight the good fight.
 
Best days to come

Good Fight By Unspoken
Until you stop breathing
Until you stop bleeding
Until your heart stops kick-drum beating
When it’s hard times
When it’s long days
And the enemy is right up in your face
When your back’s against the ropes and you’re feeling all alone
Keep fighting the good fight (Never give up, never give up)
Keep letting your light shine (Holding it high as long as you live)
‘Cause I’m never gonna leave you
Always gonna see you through to the other side
Keep fighting the good fight, fighting the good
fighting the good fight, good fight

Even through the rough spots
When you’re feeling you’ve given all that you’ve got
I’m with you in the next step
