FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT
MAY 4 WED 2022
“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith” 2 Tim. 4:7 KJV Apostle Paul could say that because he was confident that he had applied himself to the best of his ability to everything he had to do.
He knew he had given his best. See the translation of this verse in the Good News Bible “I have done my best in the race, I have run the full distance, and I have kept the faith”. He was yet to face the ‘ultimate evaluation’ of his ministry. An evaluation which we all must face (2 Cor. 5: 10). But he knew he could beat his chest and say he did everything he was expected to do, to
the best of his knowledge and understanding.
Can you say that too? Can you say you are giving your best in all the spheres of life you are currently operating in? In your family, in your church, at your place of work? Are you doing your best? We don’t have to worry about the past anymore. But from today, let us give our best in every place. And we too can confidently say, in the twilight of our days, that we have fought the good fight…we have kept the faith.
Heavenly Father help to uphold my commitment to do the best you expect of me every time and every day, in Jesus name Amen.
