Tips in Fighting the Good Fight

The following tips were taken from a recent message delivered by one of my elders. I modified the language a little for the purposes of this post.

In it, he pointed out that in order to keep God centered in our lives we have to consistently resist the temptation of loving other things more than we love God.

So let’s look at some practical ways to do this.

  1. Eliminate things and habits that constantly pull you away from seeing the Lord as your ultimate treasure. This is best done while replacing them with things that reinforce a focus on God. (like the next item)
  2. Set time for regular, daily prayer.
  3. Practice regular Worship keeping. Having dedicated worship time with the faithful is very edifying. It is good to have time for spiritual rest and reflection.
  4. Confess your idols to God and ask Him to reshape your loves toward Him.

One thought on “Tips in Fighting the Good Fight

  1. Thanks for the practical and necessary “tips.” Brings to mind Ephesians 5: 1-21 and Hebrews 12: 1ff. It’s all written there, we just need to die to self and go forth in the power of the Spirit. May God help us do this, and allow us to enjoy the blessing of our thirst being quenched in Him.
