Fight of Faith
That’s what Paul calls the Christian life in 1 Timothy 6:12 and in 2 Timothy 4:7.
Everything we need flows from faith in Christ, including –
The provision of the Spirit (Galatians 3:5)
- Obedience (Hebrews 11:8)
- Love for others (Galatians 5:6)
- Peace (Isaiah 26:3)
- Joy (Philippians 1:25)
- Overcoming of the world (1 John 5:3-5)
- Spiritual life (John 20:31)
- Power to extinguish Satan’s flaming darts (Ephesians 6:16)
But this raises a question –
How Do I Fight This Fight?
Here are some blog posts that I hope will help answer this question, and encourage you in the fight —

Here’s what happened yesterday.
We all know gloating is wrong. But how can we be freed from this ugly sin?
Here’s what happened last week.
My father encouraged me to strengthen my faith with Gethsemane Love.
What do you do when you are barraged with one fear after another?
Here’s what happened to me Tuesday night.
Willpower alone can’t produce obedience because obedience includes feelings, and we can’t change feelings by willpower.
But God has good news.
