1 Timothy 6:12 (KJV) Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

Amaka was very excellent at her work. Because of this she became a favorite of her boss. One day he gave her a new assignment, and this assignment would involve her constantly telling lies and violating her conscience. She thought about it and decided to politely decline the opportunity. He asked her why she was turning down such an opportunity to be promoted faster than her colleagues. She simply responded: "sir, doing this work would be against my faith". He reminded her that he too was a Christian and even a deacon. When it became clear that Amaka wasn’t willing to take the "opportunity" he was presenting her, he gave it to somebody else. He couldn't afford to lose her because she was really good at her job.

Amaka turned down the offer because she knew taking it would be violating her faith. Amaka didn’t say she couldn’t do the job because of her religion, she said she couldn’t do it because it was against her faith.

There are certain things that when a believer begins to do, he is doing it at the peril of his own faith. Telling lies, for example. is a faith killer. People who live by faith do not make a habit of telling lies because they believe God will come through for them and they don’t have to tell a lie. Having unbeliever friends is a great faith killer. Even though we are to love everybody, everybody cannot be your friend. Unbelief is a contagious spiritual force that is easily transmitted through friendship.

If a believer continually walks in a way that violates his faith, he is rendering himself spiritually weak and ineffective.

Go into today remembering that as believers, we should fight the good fight of faith. This involves identifying the things that weaken our faith and running away from them.
