Our faith walk: a fight

overcome to overcomer

1 Timothy 6:12 ‘Fight the good fight of the faith.’

The original Greek word for this term ‘fight’ is ‘agon’ meaning a struggle in the soul from which we get the English word agony or agonize.  And we should handle the fight as one who recognizes that he has an adversary.  It is not just a matter of the ‘road being steep’ but we have an adversary – the devil and we must fight on.
We must never surrender and we must never throw in the towel.  Our faith walk can be compared to a fight.
