Life is full of choices but one of the choices we make every day is whether we are going to choose to serve the Lord or our own flesh. Hence, the Spirit and the Flesh are always at war and you’re going to serve one or the other. The truth is that who we choose to serve is demonstrated on a daily basis through our actions. What do your actions display? Does your actions display that you’ve made a choice to live for God or do they display that you’ve chosen to live according to the flesh. However, you make a choice daily whether consciously or subconsciously. Thus, Joshua said “And if it seems evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose ye this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your father served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15).

(1 Cor. 9:26) “I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:”
In this text Paul speaks of his Christian walk as one that’s dominated by running and fighting. However, in his Christian walk he doesn’t run and fight for the faith with uncertainty or ambiguity because he understands what he is fighting for. Hence, when the road gets tough Paul has the stamina to stay in the fight because he knows what he is fighting for. And this is where many Christians fail in their walk with Christ, when they don’t know what they are fighting for there is a propensity to quit when the way gets tough; there is a propensity to get out of the ring after a fight with the enemy and never return to battle. However, when you know what you’re fighting for, quitting is not an option! To give up on God is out of the picture! Christian leaders, family and friends can often encourage you to stay in the fight, they may even be able to provide you with some insight but ultimately whether you are going to remain in the chase; whether you plan to fight will be up to you…but you must know what and even who you’re fighting for.
God Bless You
