Fighting for Christ

Why do we keep on fighting for Christ.

Why do we need to keep on living a difficult life as Christians being persecuted, ridiculed and mocked?
Is it all worth it?

We are told to fight the good fight with true faith.
To me, this means that we need to keep on pushing for Christ. Because we believe in Christ, because we believe He saved us, because we believe He shed His blood for us, our sins and our lives, because He loves us, because He protects us, because He gave us eternal life after we depart this earth...and...and...and.
How many more reason do we need?

Well, I am sure we all know these reasons already, but still, we remain 'unconvinced' about our faith? I certainly do at times!
It says in 1 Timothy 6:12, the reason why we continue to fight in faith is because of eternal life promised to us.
Never be in a situation where you are shamed because of your actions, meaning don't let people look at you and think, "some christian that is.He claims to be christian, but then he is the biggest gossiper around and slanders people left, right and centre!".
Does this hit home?   It surely does for me!
But isn't it great that we have a God that forgives. Isn't it great that we serve a God that loves us, understands us and wipes away our sins when we confess them to Him.
Why should He though? 
We are bad people. We all sin!

I went through some of the sins in the bible that are mentioned...and actually realised how many of those I am guilty of. Take a read through them here:

Just take this excerpt from the New Living translation bible and then put your name instead of TIMOTHY:
Timothy, guard what God has entrusted to you. Avoid godless, foolish discussions with those who oppose you with their so-called knowledge.
Some people have wandered from the faith by following such foolishness. May God's grace be with you. 


Stand up for God. Avoid people who try and tempt you otherwise with their stories. Avoid the attempts of the devil through other people saying that are not good enough. Because you are through Gods eyes, all the time, everywhere, forever and ever!

Amen
