Kept The Faith

Something to think about.

Kept The Faith

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7(ESV)

Will I be able to say the same? The world is striving to remove Christianity from the face of the earth. There is increasing persecution in all areas of the world.  Our beliefs are under attack both in the courts of public opinion and in the courts of law. As the pressure intensifies will I be able to say “I have kept the faith”? I now realize, in order for me to be able to say “I have kept the faith”  I must allow the life of Christ that is in me to infuse me with the power needed to “fight the good fight” and “finish the race.”  It is only the power of Christ in me that will empower me to overcome the power of the world that is against me.

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
