1 Timothy 6:12
"Fight the good fight of faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses." NIV
"Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold of eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and has professed a good profession before many witnesses." KJV
Christianity has been called a "crutch" for weak people. This couldn't be further from the truth. We are called to fight the good fight of faith. This tell us living the Christian life is a tough struggle that is definitely not for the weak. Making our public testimony of faith by baptism, we are equipped and responsible to defeat the evil one and our own sinful nature. That is the good fight of faith, not a crutch.
Heavenly Father, we have confessed our faith in You and we realize we are now in a spiritual battle. We ask for Your strength and power to overcome Satan and our own sinful natures, not for crutches to hobble along life's path. In Jesus' name, Amen.
