Fight the Good Fight of Faith
But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus h who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate,
that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ's appearing,
which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords,
who alone has immortality, dwelling in i unapproachable light, j whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.
Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain k riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things l to enjoy.
Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share,
m storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
O Timothy! n Guard what was committed to your trust, o avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge -
by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amen.

And when they had bound Him, they led Him away and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.
Pilate therefore said to Him, "Are You a king then?" Jesus answered, "You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.
He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what is in the darkness, And light dwells with Him.
Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God; He has seen the Father.
Thus says the LORD: "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches.
For because you have trusted in your works and your treasures, You also shall be taken. And Chemosh shall go forth into captivity, His priests and his princes together.
Here is what I have seen: It is good and fitting for one to eat and drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labor in which he toils under the sun all the days of his life which God gives him; for it is his heritage.
As for every man to whom God has given riches and wealth, and given him power to eat of it, to receive his heritage and rejoice in his labor - this is the gift of God.
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Jesus said to him, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.
2 Timothy 1:12
For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.
2 Timothy 1:14
That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.
Not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth.
