Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life…
[1st Timothy 6:12]
Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of [this] life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
[2nd Timothy 2:3-4]
The soldiers of Jesus Christ must approve themselves good soldiers, faithful to their Captain, resolute in His cause, and must not give over fighting till they are made ‘more than conquerors, through Him that loved them.'”
