Fight the Good Fight

Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis, in Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - mosaic of Christ, "I have fought a good fight"

While Advent remembers the longing of Israel for the Messiah, Whose birth we celebrate at Christmas, this season also has an eschatological dimension — we await Christ's return at the end of the world, and also His judgement. Am I able to say, along with Saint Paul, I have fought a good fight, I have kept the faith?
