2 Timothy 2:4 – 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.
2 Timothy 2:3 – Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
Guard your mind from lusts of your flesh. Don’t chase what feels good. Hope for the Grace of God. Receive the righteousness of Jesus and live in it. You are not Holy because of wealth or because your family goes to church. You have a personal calling to follow after Jesus and shine for Him (1 Peter 1:13-22).
1 Peter 1:23 – Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
When Jesus lives in your heart, the Holy Spirit becomes your guide. We love each other and forgive, understanding that man will make mistakes. We do not seek vengeance, rather forgiveness.
1 Peter 1:24-25 – For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
The physical body we have will perish and go back to the dust as grass withers and dies. The glory we attain on earth will fall away. It is what we accomplish for Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit that will be with us for eternity.
Get on your knees and fight like a man!
