Lay Hold of Eternal Life

Eternal: that which is without beginning and end — that which always has been and always will be.


 1 Timothy 6:12

Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called. . . (NKJV)
Compete well for the faith and lay hold of that eternal life you were called for. . . (NET)
Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called. . . (NASB)


Think about the scriptural text you just read and take from it what the Lord wants to give you. Repeat the text to yourself. Memorize it. Allow it to sink into you.


Talk to the Lord about what you discovered during your time of reflection. Ask Him to reveal the true meaning of the scripture to you and how you can apply it to your life. Wait for and listen to His response to you.


Finally, simply rest in the Word of God and in His presence. Abide in the Lord and allow Him to abide in you by and through His Word.
