|So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, he struck & killed the Philistine
FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT!
Christian Hymn by John Monsell (1811 – 1875)
Fight the good fight with all your might!
Christ in my strength, and Christ is my right,
on life and it shall be
The joy and crown eternally.
Run the straight race through God’s good grace,
Lift up your eyes, and seek His face,
Life with its way before us lies,
Christ is the path, and Christ the prize.
Cast care aside, lean on the Guide,
His boundless mercy will provide.
Trust, and your trusting soul shall
Christ is its life, and Christ its love.
Faint not now fear, His arms are near,
He changes not,
and you are dear,
Only believe and you shall see,
That Christ is all and all to you.
many of us are spiritually flabby, often avoiding spiritual conflict instead of facing it. That was certainly not the apostle
Paul’s style, nor was it John Monsell’s. Monsell was a gifted Irish clergyman who could hold his congregation
spellbound as he spoke. He had an enthusiastic and charismatic personality and a quick wit, and he advocated "more fervent
and joyous" singing in his church. He once told his congregation, ‘We are too distant and reserved inour praises.’"
This is a quotation (page 668) from the most excellent book titled The Complete Book of Hymns by William J. Petersen and
Ardythe Petersen. I highly recommend this book for your devotional reading.
FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT, FOR TO US ALL THE GREAT NEWS
IS THE LORD JESUS, MY REDEEMER LIVES GET INVOLVED IN A EVANGELICAL OUT REACH TO LOST SOULS BE A SOLDIER OF LOVE.
LISTED BELOW ARE PRECIOUS PROMISES FROM GOD
BY SUBJECT MATTER
OBEDIENCE - - - Revelation
22:12-15 Speaking of Jesus, the Son of God, "Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according
to their deeds. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” Blessed are those
who wash their robes. They will be permitted to enter through the gates of the city and eat the fruit from the tree of life.
Outside the city are the dogs—the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idol worshipers, and all who love
to live a lie."
CALLED TO SERVE - - - - Mathew
4:18-20 “One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers—Simon, also called
Peter, and Andrew—throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. Jesus called out to them, “Come,
follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” And they left their nets at once and followed him. "
JESUS SAVES US - - - John 5-24 Jesus says, "I tell
you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned
for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life. "
FRUITFUL FOR GOD - - - John 15:5-8 Jesus says "Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches.
Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not
remain in me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers. Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned. But if
you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! When you produce much
fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father.”
IS OUR REFUGE - - - Psalm 9:9-10 "The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times
of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.”
