Shipwrecked Faith!

September 14, 2014

I hear the effects of the shipwrecked faith, but I wonder how strong their faith really was and is Stand firm….”Plant your feet, Stand your ground and hold on to your faith.”
-John Monroe Parker, my grandfather was a wise man.

1 Timothy 1:18-20
This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare,  having faith and a good conscience, which some having rejected, concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck,  of whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I delivered to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme.

Paul encourages Timothy to fight the good fight, and to keep his conscience clear. Then, there is a warning, and we find that our faith is able to be shipwrecked if we are not willing to stand firm in our faith. Temptation will come, and by the leading of the Holy Spirit our conscience is made aware of the sin trying to enter and corrupt us. In this way our propensity to sin is revealed to us, and we are made aware of the choices we ought to make. We are able to make the right choice, to fight the good fight, to flee from sin, because of Jesus Christ. Stand firm today! Do not allow sin to entice you and drag you away! Jesus is greater than any impulse or temptation you face.
