3 Beloved, while I was diligent to write to you about the common salvation, I found it necessary to write and exhort you that you should earnestly contend for the faith,1 which was once delivered to the saints.
|1 Timothy 6:12 |
12 Fight the good fight of faith,3 lay hold of the eternal life to which you are called and have professed before many witnesses. [Maintain your faith in the promises of God, and His warnings of necessary suffering to be through with sin. Keep waiting on God, listening, and watching. Stay in the cross of obedience. He will not fail you. It is a fight that yields victory.]
