Podcast #67: “Good Fight” by Unspoken

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

Do you ever feel like you are leaving one battle for another day after day? “Good Fight” by Unspoken leads us to the New and Old Testaments to see what Scripture teaches us about “fighting the good fight.”


I cover a lot of ground this week, and I hope you will take the time to dig into Scripture for yourself. We can all use tips on how to better “fight the good fight” of our faith.

In this episode, I discuss:

  • Reading 1st and 2nd Timothy all at once to get the big picture
    • If you are not familiar with these letters from Paul to Timothy, read them in an easy-to-read translation like New Living Translation or New International Version
    • If you are familiar with many of the passages found in these letters, read them in an unfamiliar version. I used The Voice translation online at
  • The background of the relationship between Paul and Timothy
  • Focusing in on the three verses that specifically mention the “good fight” – 1 Timothy 1:18, 1 Timothy 6:12 & 1 Timothy 4:7
  • Paul teaching Timothy to fight the good fight through prayer
  • To fight the good fight is to persevere
  • Paul teaching Timothy to fight the good fight by running from evil and pursuing righteousness
  • Nehemiah‘s good fight to rebuild the wall and one of his enemies, Sanballat
  • Description of the characteristics of Nehemiah’s enemy
  • Lessons from Nehemiah in fighting a good fight

This Week’s Challenge

Follow my journey this week by reading all of 1st and 2nd Timothy. Make some lists and ponder how Paul’s instructions equipped Timothy to fight the good fight. Through the leading of the Holy Spirit, draw some conclusions on what tactics God wants you to employ to fight your good fight. Then, head over to Nehemiah and read that story. Focus on how Nehemiah led his people to fight the good fight. I gave you four conclusions, but you may discover more.
