I Timothy 6:12 tells us to “Fight the good fight of faith!”

How many of us would be willing to fight three years of intense warfare for our faith? The Maccabees fought for three years to liberate the holy Temple. Hanukkah is the memorial day of the Dedication of the Temple and the miracle of the oil.

It is recorded in Luke 18:8 that Jesus said, “I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man
comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” He was teaching on prayer at that point.

One of our faithful local pastors was trying to get other pastors together to pray for their community and one response from a pastor was, “I don’t want to stir the devil up more than he is already stirred up.” Another pastor resonded, “So, you are one of those praying pastors.”

My response, JESUS!! Wake up these slumbering undershepherds!! Or replace them with undershepherds who have a passion to see Your Kingdom come and Your will to be done!!!!

Let us fight the good fight of faith and let our light shine.
