But he who endures to the end shall be saved. (Matthew 24:13 NKJV)
We are in a spiritual battle. It is our greatest fight for a lifetime which we have to win. Are you winning or losing? Jesus said that in this world we have many troubles, yet He has conquered the world. Realize this, dear brethren, that Jesus is coaching us. He is in our corner. He teaches us how to win the fight because He won against the opponent. Our opponent is the world. It presses and pushes us to surrender and give up, to not continue our walk with the Lord. The world wants us to fall in sins. We are at odds with the world for we are not of this world, we are citizens of heaven. You see, we are more than conquerors because of the love of Christ. He prepares us for every round in the fight. He shows us our mistakes and corrects us. He comforts and encourages us to go on for the next round. He constantly reminds us of the fight plan, which is the eternal purpose of God for us and His Church. He knows we can win. He has confidence in us because He trained us as His Disciples. This is what we can do. Listen and follow His instructions. A good offense is a great defense. The truth is our weapon. It is deadly than the lies of the enemies. Hold on to our faith and make sure it is strong enough to endure any attacks against us. Do not surrender no matter what. Put our hope in the Lord. At the end of the fight, we shall be the ones standing firm. We shall be declared the winner, and our reward is the crown of righteousness. Fight a good fight!
