There Are Some Things Worth Fighting For

You've all seen the movies and tv shows where the kids start screaming, "Fight, fight, fight." At this statement everyone within hearing distance runs towards the scene of the fight. They want to see whats going on.
Now I'm not one to promote fighting, but usually one of the parties involved has a sincere reason to fight. They believe so much in something that they refuse to back down. Even if that means getting beat up.
That's just how God wants us to be. He tells us in I Timothy 6:12, "Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses."
Being a Christian is like being in a war. There are battles everyday. We are to fight. There are enemies on every side, and at times we will feel beaten down, but never lose hope because Christ has already won the war.
That's why He tells us to "lay hold on eternal life." We can claim it. It's already ours. No matter how fierce this earthly battle may become, victory is already ours. Our job is simply to recruit more soldiers for the Lord.
So check your life today. Are you fighting for the Lord? Are you drawing a crowd with your witness? That should be the goal for each and every one of us!

This reminded me of what John Wesley said after someone commented on the crowds he drew to his open-air crusades. When asked how he attracted so many people, Wesley said, "I just light myself on fire and people come to watch me burn." I wanna draw a crowd too. Maybe I should pick a fight or strike a match.

Great thoughts as always, Heather. I would come to see Duran burn. ; )
We are in a battle, one I believe is much larger and intense than we could imagine in our finite minds.
