You therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ 2 Timothy 2:3
When you become a Christian you become a Soldier Under Command. A soldier under Gods command to endure the hardness and fight the good fight of faith. We must not approach our faith lightly and we should expect hardship and trials among the way.
This shows you have far off the “Prosperity Gospel” is from the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our riches are not of this world but are the grace from God through Jesus Christ
No man that wars entangles himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who has chosen him to be a soldier. 2 Timothy 2:4
We don’t live to please ourselves but to please God who has chosen us to be a “Soldier Under Command”. The “Prosperity Gospel” tells you lies of pursing riches and fame. But a true Soldier of Christ denies themselves and becomes a servant to God
And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully. 2 Timothy 2:5
If we expect to inherit the Kingdom of Heaven, we must inherit it lawfully. Meaning we must truly be a “Soldier Under Command “for God and not for this world. We can’t expect to live for this world and be living lawfully for God, for we can only serve one master.
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you are also called, and have professed a good profession before many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:12
As Soldiers Under Command we must remember to “Fight the Good Fight” for Jesus Christ. We must be prepared to endure the hardships and press on as soldiers in Jesus Name Amen
