10/21/19: 1 Timothy 6:1-21; Psalm 89:38-52; Proverbs 25:28
1 Timothy 6: 11 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
If you have ever thought about just “sitting back and taking it easy” as a Christian believer take a look at the instruction Paul provides Timothy. Can you think of any more active verb commands than “flee,” “pursue,” “fight,” and “take hold.”
There is no room in the kingdom for a “lazy” Christian!
