Wage the Good Warfare
Perseverance, 1 Timothy, Media, Sermons | by
Pastor Adam Sinnett
Since God is the most precious reality in the universe, it is crucial that we get him right and not merely rely on our own personal preferences, hunches about who He is and what He is like. Everything is on the line if we God – and his Gospel – wrong. This is just as true today as it was 2,000 years ago when this letter was originally written which, of course, is why we’re studying it together. In light of all this, it is not surprising that Paul chooses to close his introduction by emphasizing that the Christian life is a battle and encourages us to “wage the good warfare.” (1:18) The word “good” means “noble” or “excellent”. In other words, Paul is saying that this is most important war you can fight.
