Good Fight Of Faith

I Timothy 6:10-12
covet - to stretch out oneself, to grasp for the wrong thing
flee - to shun or avoid by flight
follow after - continuous action to seek after eagerly, earnestly, endeavor to acquire lay hold - take possession of, to hold of

A) Faith must be founded upon God's Word
Romans 10:17 Hearing by the Word of God
James 1:18-21 Receive with meekness the engrafted Word
I Peter 1:23-2:2 Desire the sincere milk of the Word

B) Faith always has corresponding works
Faith is a conviction, or confidence, and belief in the Word of God. Faith is not works, but rather trusting that God means what He says and will do what He promises. James 1:22-27 Faith is not works, but if we have genuine faith then there will be corresponding works.
James 2:14-26
Mark 2:1-5 Faith can be seen by our works.
Matthew 12:34 and 35 To have genuine faith we must evaluate what is in our lives and always be responsible for our actions.

C) Faith must be maintained unto the end Romans 2:6-11 Those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, He will give eternal life.
Hebrews 3:6-4:2; 10:23-11:3
I Timothy 6:12 Don't give up. Fight the good fight of faith.
