The good fight (1)

by Jean-Louis Coraboeuf

"I entrust you with this order, Timothy, my son, according to the prophecies made about you, that through them you may wage the good fight, and keep a good conscience" (1 Timothy 1:18-19).

Contempt for the prophets extinguishes the Holy Spirit in us; that is why we must always search every prophetic word concerning us, and keep hold of what is good (1 Thessalonians 5:19-21). That is the foundation of a good conscience.

The good fight will be that which we conduct, so that these words are accomplished, and we can enter our calling (1 Timothy 4:14). And that is the fight that will strengthen our faith, for it will be confirmed by God’s Word.
