Fighting the good fight to the end
August 25, 2011
Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
1 Timothy 6:12
Every now and then I’m asked, “Pastor, what is your greatest concern about the church in America today?” And you know what my greatest concern about the American church is? It is that somehow we would think that we’ve arrived, that we’ve finished everything that God wants us to do, that we would get in a zone of neutrality rather than pressing the battle to the limit!
What a tragedy it is! How heartbreaking it is to see some Christians who are content with a casual, just-get-by, conventional kind of Christianity rather than seeking new challenges that the Lord has for them.
If only the church today would heed the words of the apostle Paul, who saw the Christian life as a fight to the end. And on that day, we’d be able to cross the finish line of life knowing that we lived by faith in God and by the power of the Spirit!
God’s plan is for you to sail wide open by the winds of the Spirit by faith. Don’t ever accept less than the best in your life! Don’t be content with the status quo. Step out and live by faith and you’ll see God do things you never would have imagined!
THE CHRISTIAN LIFE IS A FIGHT TO THE END. SO INSTEAD OF JUST BEING CONTENT WITH THE STATUS QUO, STEP OUT AND LIVE BY FAITH IN EVERYTHING YOU DO!

Tap into your only true source of power!
When life gets busy, it’s easy to miss your daily time with the Lord. Yet, what you think will save you time actually ends up sapping you of the power you need!
That’s why I want to send you a copy of my popular 365-day devotional book called A Daily Encounter with God.This powerful tool contains a Bible-focused reading for each day that will help you plug into Jesus Christ—your only true source of power.
Along with the devotional, I’d like to send you a copy of my I Am Second story on CD. It’s my prayer that my story will be of encouragement to you or someone you know!
Both of these resources are my gifts to bless you when you give an online donation today. So thank you for giving to help PowerPoint reach people with the Good News of Jesus ’til the whole world hears.
