Young and old apostles alike, fathers and sons, before you leave 2018, I would encourage you to study and observe I. TIM. 1:18:

“This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, THAT BY THEM YOU MAY WAGE THE GOOD WARFARE, Greek strateia- “military service” i.e. (fig.) The apostolic career (as one of hardship and danger);

▪to serve in a military campaign; to execute the apostolate (with its arduous duties and functions), to contend with carnal inclinations; a soldier, ( go to) war-fare…

☆”strateia”is a root word from where we get our English word strategy- “strategos” which means “a general…”

▪a plan of action or policy designed to achieve a major or overall aim;
▪the art of planning and directing overall military operations and movements in a war or battle.
▪a plan for military operations and movements during a war or battle…
