How To Fight Against Lies

Very often, the difference between a life of rejoicing and a life of regret is how well we fight against the lies.

Paul wrote in 2nd Timothy 3:16. He said, “All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

Paul understood scripture as the primary tool that God has given us to fight against the lies.

Rejoice Or Regret

In Paul’s last letter (near his death), he declares that he had lived up to God’s call. He had triumphed over the troubles and temptations that had come his way. He fought to the finish!

God’s call on your life may not be the same as it is on Paul’s, but if you’re gonna live like a boss, then you need the same grit that Paul had. Because life is harder than it seems like it’s going to be.

Very often the difference between rejoicing and regret is grit. Grit is a key ingredient of a life well-lived.

It Takes Grit To Finish

Until Paul, the good news of Jesus had not spread much past the people of Israel. God wanted to use Paul to build the church in the Gentile world, so Paul went on 3 journeys into the Gentile world. He would go from town to town spreading the Gospel and building churches along the way.

It took 12 years to complete these 3 trips. Each trip was difficult because things had a way of not going as planned. Each season in Paul’s journey, trouble found a way to arise. The temptation to quit was often strong, but Paul had grit to finish.
