Under Gods Command

1 Timothy 6:11-12 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness.  Fight the good fight.  Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.   

Paul uses active and forceful verbs to describe the Christian life: flee, pursue, fight, take hold.  Some think Christianity is a passive religion that advocates waiting for God to act.  But we must have an active faith, training, working hard, sacrificing, and doing what we know is right.  Is it time for action on your part?  Christian service, like athletics, requires, training and sacrifice. Our discipline and obedience largely define whether or not we will be contributors or merely spectators
