All of us like to win first place. But you don’t lose just because you don’t come in first. You lose when you quit.
A lot of Christian men have given up the battle to receive their healing, to live upright lives, to stay faithful to their spouses and families, to follow God’s plan, and to obtain financial stability. How can you stay in the battle to do things God’s way? And if you’ve already quit, how can you get back in the fight?First Timothy 6:11–12 says, “But thou, O man of God, FLEE these things; and FOLLOW after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. FIGHT the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.” Notice three words: flee, follow, and fight. The success of your Christian life depends upon your learning these three things.
