打美好仗的人 One who can fight the good fight



1.分別為聖的性格: 屬神的人必不屬世界。全世界都臥在惡者手下,而我們卻是屬神的,是有君尊的祭司、聖潔的國度,要宣揚神的美德。而無論是淫亂、污穢、貪心與拜偶像一樣,都缺少神的美德,無分於神的國。

2. 逃避不義的性格: 逃避自我、自義、自私、自大、貪婪、逃避世俗虛談、似是而非的學問(提前6:20),引誘人的道理(提前4:1),假先知的謊言(提前4:2;6:5)。要逃避淫行(林前6:18)、逃避偶像如金錢、名譽地位、政治家、黨派。這是一場仗,屬神的人要不斷逃避肉體眼目情慾的牽引,逃避今生的高傲習性。不逃避就會陷入網羅、墮落、死亡。

3. 追求公義的性格:

· 公義:是神的屬性,從神的公義來看世界。國家的法律當彰顯神的公義。

· 敬虔:是像神一樣的品格,如主耶穌完全順服父神的旨意。操練敬虔凡事都有益處,有今生來生的應許。

· 信心:必須不斷成長(路17:5),並要持守(羅14:22)、還要省察與試驗 (林後13:5),因為信心沒有行為是死的(雅2:26)。

4. 追求完善的性格:

· 愛心:這裡的愛是從神而來無條件的愛,和人的愛不同。這種愛是從清潔的心和無虧的良心、無偽的信心生出來的。

· 忍耐:愛是恆久忍耐,學習基督的忍耐來事奉、用百般的忍耐傳道。

· 溫柔:凡事謙虛溫柔。


But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. (1 Timothy 6:11)

A believer who is justified by faith, a man of God, must fight for the faith, uphold the truth, and stay away from syncretism. At the same time, we must fight the battle between our old self and new self, the battle between selfishness and selflessness, the battle between darkness and light. What is the essential character of a person who can fight the good fight?

1. A consecrated character: A man of God must not belong to the world. The whole world lies under the hands of the evil Spirit. Yet we belong to God; we are a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and we must declare the praises of God. No immoral, impure, or greedy person - such person is an idolater - has an inheritance in the kingdom of God, because he has no virtues of God.

2. Fleeing from unrighteousness: Flee from old self, self-righteousness, selfishness, arrogance, greed; turn away from godless chatter, the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge (I Tim. 6:20), seductive truth (I Tim. 4:1), the lies of false prophet(I Tim. 4:2; 6:5). Avoid sexual immorality (I Cor. 6:18), avoid invisible and common idols such as money, reputation, politicians, and political parties. This is a battle, and the people of God must constantly escape the desires and lusts of the flesh, eyes, and escape the arrogant habits of this life. If you don't escape, you will fall into the snare, pit, and death.

3. Pursuing righteous character:

· Righteousness: It is the attribute of God, view the world from the righteousness of God. The laws of the country should demonstrate God's justice.

· Godliness: God-like character, as the Lord Jesus completely obeyed the will of God the Father. Practicing godliness is beneficial in everything, and has the promise of this life and the next life.

· Faith: It must grow continuously (Luke 17:5), and must be kept (Romans 14:22), but also be examined and tested (2 Corinthians 13:5), because faith without works is dead (James 2:26).

4. Pursuing perfect character:

· Love: The love here is unconditional love from God, which is different from human love. This kind of love is born out of a pure heart, a good conscience, and a true faith.

· Patience: Love is long-suffering. Learn the patience of Christ to serve and preach with all kinds of patience.

· Gentle: Modest and gentle in everything.

As the people of God, may we be able to fight good battles, and possess the character of fighting: consecrated, avoiding unrighteousness, pursuing righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness. These characteristics help us fight good battles, and fighting helps exercise our character.
