1Timothy 6:12 (ESV)
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.
2Timothy 4:7-8 (ESV)
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. From now on the crown of righteousness is laid up for me, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but to all who crave His appearing.
It is so easy to be lazy and not plod on in the good fight of faith in Christ Jesus and stagnate in the same place you have been in and just stay there. I love to plod on closer towards my eternity in Christ Jesus with Jesus. After experiencing such wonder in His presence, the desire of my heart is to know Him more in this place.
When I was young, I just had a dream. Just a dream. I did not know that this dream was put into my heart by the Lord and as I continued to pursue this dream of knowing God intimately, I found Him.
I see the world working hard at things that are worldly but not eternal. I seek after the eternal things and this is too because the Lord has put them into my heart for we are saved by grace so that none may boast but I only boast of Christ crucified.
So when all is going well and then I think perhaps I shall stop as I have come so far that none other is in this place with Christ our Lord but me, literally speaking. And then, my heart is prodded by the Holy Spirit to move on higher and brighter and nearer and dearer to Christ Jesus our Lord.
