If you’ve watch our television show, “Christian Music Videos”, and have paid any attention to the credits at the end, you may have noticed that the series is produced by our non-profit company, KTF Productions. And maybe at some point you might have asked yourself, “What does the KTF in KTF Productions stand for?” Well, I’m glad you asked. We named the company after our very first project, which happened to be our very first movie called, “Keep The Faith” – which means our company is actually Keep The Faith Productions. The movie was inspired by the verse of scripture from 2 Timothy 4:7, which says:
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."
Paul says these words to Timothy as he passes the torch onto him, so to speak. He encourages Timothy to be ready to preach the word in season and out of season. He warns him that a time is coming when people will not listen to sound doctrine and will go wherever their itching ears take them. But regardless of what the future holds, he encourages Timothy to endure to the end. Then almost as if he is speaking the words that might one day be on his headstone, he says, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” The phrase, “Keep the Faith” is meant to encourage you in all situations to stay faithful to God. And the KTF in KTF Productions, reminds me of that as well.
Paul often described our walk through life with God as a race. He warns us about being disqualified, and he encourages us to run our race as if we are in a competition. I challenge you to follow the sentiment of Paul’s words to Timothy when he says, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” Like Paul, we should think of our life as a race – a race that will one day end. And yes, it matters how we run it. So, I want to encourage you to always keep the faith.
