One of the things I want to do is finish well.

I can remember as a kid growing up my parents would say, “Finish what you start.” Quitting was not an option.  When I was in 8th grade I joined the Model Airplane Club. I had a friend who was in it and talked me into it. I had about as much business being in that club as I belong on a catwalk. (I was looking for an extreme). I’m not very detail-oriented and certainly not in “fine” things like cutting balsa wood and building airplanes which are supposed to fly. But I wasn’t allowed to drop out of the class because I had to “finish what I started.”

Paul compares the life of the Christ-follower as a race. The writer of Hebrews talks about “looking to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith.” The race we are in is a marathon not a sprint. It is a long-distance run. It is a race which requires endurance and a constant battle against discouragement.

My final sermon in the True North series is “Finishing Well” this Sunday. This will be a good way to wrap up the series and bring closure. Thanks for your prayers.
