Fighting a Good Fight of Faith

But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit (Ephesians 2:13–22).

From the above Scriptures, Christ had joined us (the Gentiles) with Jews. This gives us access to the Father. (Ephesians 2:18). Having access to the Father gives room for investigation. The adversary is always trying to stop us and for this reason, there is a need for us to continue to fight for our rights (1 Timothy 6:12). To fight, we need spiritual weapon (2 Corinthians 10:4-6). This fight requires our effort.Prophetic Word: “What you have does not define who you are.”
