I was reminded the other day how important it is to finish strong. It's so tempting to slow down or give up when we get weary, but that's the time to push forward even more. Christ will be strong in our weakness. This life is nothing more than an opportunity to grow in Christ, learn, and mature. Its not a time to accumulate things or live life our own way. Don't waste your time on temporal things that will fade away. Love people, love your family, serve others, be a generous giver, speak the Word, pursue Christ with your whole being - those are things worth your time. Don't let up, be willing to loose your life to find it. My eyes are fixed on eternity. I believe God's Word is true and I will rule and reign with Him in a new heaven and a new earth. Now is the time to learn and grow and prepare. Now is the time to finish strong.
