July 5 – 1 Timothy 6:11-12 – Pursuing, Fighting, Holding

Hello and thanks for joining in on to today’s daily devotion. Today is Tuesday. July 5th. The 3rd day of the Hebraic week.

Our verses today are 1Tim. 6:11 and 12

But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. 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.

Just after talking about being content with food and clothing and warning of the love of money, Paul gives this encouragement to Timothy about what he should pursue. Six things to pursue: righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. That’s a lot to think about. In fact, these in themselves can truly keep one busy. But I can’t help but think that is the purpose. To keep ourselves focused on Him.

Then verse 12 seems to stick out even more. He said “Fight the good fight of faith”, “Take hold of the eternal life”. We’ve all heard people say “This is the life.” when referencing something they are truly enjoying. Meaning, they are truly taking hold of that moment. The question is, are we doing that with the eternal life He has given us?

Take some time today and reflect on your everyday life. Are you pursuing these things given to us? Are you fighting the good fight? Are you truly taking hold of the life He has given us?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until tomorrow, shalom!
