Paul encouraged Timothy to wage the good warfare, but to do so he needed to have a couple of things on his side:

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… (1 Timothy 1.18–19).

How can you wage the good warfare if you do not have faith and you do not have a good conscience? You can’t. Therefore, live a clean life and put your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.


  • Are you fighting the good warfare?
  • Do you know what it is?
