Fight or Flight |  Moments of Comfort

As preparing for a race can feel like a fight between apathy and taking on the challenge of training, running our lives of faith can also feel like a battle. We daily struggle with the temptation to not live up to who God has called us to be. Martin Luther paints this as a struggle with our “Old Adam.” He says that the “Old Adam in us should by daily contrition and repentance be drowned and die with all sins and evil desires.” That sounds like quite a wrestling match to start your morning with. Here's the encouragement and challenge that scripture gives us in 1 Timothy 6:12, “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.”
