Finishing Strong

Rev Steve - 25 Jun 2015

Life is a race, writes the apostle Paul; and reaching the finishing line (heaven) is the goal. It doesn't matter how you started or even how the journey was, but what matters is finishing, and finishing strong.

Therefore, three main principles are to be applied if we are to finish life's race strong and friends it's all up H.I.L.


1) Humility
2) Integrity 
3) causing Legacy. 

No matter what we own, earn or possess, they don't make the person, the person makes them. When we die, and we all will eventually; its the legacy of our lives that we leave behind not what we own but who we were. 

We came into life and were placed in a box (crib) and we leave life being put back in a box (coffin) we brought nothing in and we take nothing out (there's no riches man in the cemetery) all we possess is our reputation, which in turn feeds our legacy.

Jesus finished well, in fact he triumphed over death with resurrected new life, no one else in all of history has accomplished that. We too can take part in that new life and finish well, if we allow Him to be our coach. Until then, the question remains: what reputation do we have?
