Finish Strong posted by John Sorensen on May 27, 2019

Do you ever feel like fast forwarding to the ‘good part’ of life? Maybe you’re in a storm right now and you just want things to get better and move past this part. Well, there aren’t buttons like that in life.

Solomon has some wisdom for us in Ecclesiastes chapter seven, for when we feel like this. ’Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.’

When you feel like hitting that fast forward button, remember to be patient. Whatever it is you are enduring now will make the end – the Kingdom of Heaven – that much sweeter.

Hebrews 12:1 says to lay aside every weight and sin that entangles us and run with endurance the race that is set before us.

A lady named Lisa told us that she’s found security and purpose since coming to know Jesus. She said, ‘life has been tumultuous, but even in the storms God has given me peace, hope, and refuge.’ She’s running the race set before her every day, because she knows how important it is!

If you want to finish strong and hear the words, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant,’ then set your mind to the task – running the race and finishing strong. Share the Gospel whenever you can.

Paul says in his second letter to Timothy, ‘So you, my child, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.  And what you heard me say in the presence of many others as witnesses entrust to faithful people who will be competent to teach others as well.’

This is our focus this week at Evangelism Explosion through our social media channels and our daily broadcast. Visit ShareLife.Today for resources to run the race set before you and finish strong.

May God richly bless you this week as you set your eyes on Jesus!
