In week 3, we delve deep into the profound concept of Aggressive Faith. So, let’s embark on this journey together, exploring the essence of faith that is not passive but bold, active, and unwavering.

Understanding Aggressive Faith

Faith, often portrayed as a passive acceptance, is far more dynamic than we often perceive. Aggressive Faith is marked by an unyielding determination, a relentless pursuit of the divine promises set before us. It acknowledges that the greater the reward, the fiercer the battle. As stated in 1 Corinthians 9:24, we are encouraged to run the race set before us with patience and endurance, striving to obtain the prize that awaits us.


The Fight of Faith

In 1 Timothy 6:12, we are instructed to “Fight The Good Fight of Faith.” But what does this fight entail? It’s more than a mere struggle; it’s a spiritual battle against the forces that seek to hinder our journey. This fight arises from various sources, including the resistance of our flesh to God’s will, the challenges presented by our circumstances, the opposition of others, and the relentless attacks of the enemy himself.

When Paul emphasizes the word “fight,” he paints a vivid picture of complete concentration and unwavering focus on engaging the conflict at hand. It’s a commitment to victory, no matter the length or intensity of the battle.


Equipped for Battle

Ephesians 6:10-19 reminds us of the importance of being equipped for the spiritual warfare we face. We are urged to put on the whole armor of God, not to fight against flesh and blood but against spiritual forces of wickedness. This armor comprises the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith, the Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit.

Each piece of this armor is essential for our defense against the enemy’s schemes. The Belt of Truth holds everything together, while the Breastplate of Righteousness protects our hearts from guilt and condemnation. The Shoes of Peace prepare us to stand firm, and the Shield of Faith deflects the fiery darts of doubt and fear. The Helmet of Salvation guards our minds, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, is our offensive weapon against the enemy’s lies.


Embracing the Battle

Aggressive Faith calls us to embrace the battle, to confront the strongholds and lies that seek to ensnare us. We must resist the voices of doubt and condemnation, walking boldly in the truth and light of God’s Word. As Romans 10:1 reminds us, our heart’s desire should be for the salvation of others, fueling our passion to fight for the lost and rekindle their desire for the truth.



As we conclude this exploration of Aggressive Faith, let us be reminded of the call to stand firm in our convictions, to fight with unwavering determination, and to press on toward the prize set before us. May we walk boldly in the truth of God’s Word, knowing that victory is assured for those who fight the good fight of faith. Let’s continue to seek, to strive, and to fight for the cause of Christ, bringing hope and salvation to a world in need.
