12 Fight the good fight of the faith [in the conflict with evil]; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and [for which] you made the good confession [of faith] in the presence of many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:12
We need to understand that we are at war daily with the enemy. We must fight the good fight of faith with the word of God. Our time spent daily in God’s word is vital to our health in our relationship with God. God’s word is the nutrition for our relationship with Him. A failure to be in God’s word daily is simply a recipe to walk in defeat.
We are called to take hold of the eternal life to which we were called. This calls actively pursuing the Lord with everything that is within us. It requires that we seek His face and make pursuing His kingdom the priority of our lives. It is very easy to become distracted in this world and allow things to take the place He deserves. But when we understand this reality we will guard our hearts daily.
