Finishing Strong


"Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you a crown of life" (Rev.2:10).

Have you ever watched your favorite team get off to a strong start, only to falter at the end of the game? In life, many start out their Christian walk with vigor and enthusiasm. That attitude should not only continue, but increase as we get older. Sadly, that does not happen. A good and determined athlete tries his or her hardest throughout the whole contest! They can't take off a play here and a play there and expect success. Tomorrow's successes come from the preparation that is done today. Winning comes by both sacrifice and preparation. I have bandied the words winning and losing about in my last three devotionals. To be truthful, the terms winners and losers are not used in the Bible, but saved and lost are. What we are to teach others is not really about winning, but about being faithful. Today's verse is succinct and to the point. If we want that crown of life, we must be faithful right to the end. We must start out strong and maintain that faith throughout our lives. We have to get into the "outs" of life. We must try to out read and out meditate others. We must try to out serve and out believe others. Lastly, we must try to even out love others. We need to start strong, get stronger, and finish the strongest if we want that precious crown....

Have a wonderful day... Do good, give Jesus the credit..... Love mark Phil.4:11
