From Start to Finish

Run with perseverance
the race marked out for us.
      —Hebrews 12:1

It is one thing to start well; quite another to finish well.

The Christian life is more than being fast out of the blocks; it’s a marathon of growth and persistence …

Add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love (2 Pet. 1:5-7).

Peter promised that “if you do these things, you will never fall, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Pet. 1:10-11).

No wonder the Hebrew writer urged us to “run with perseverance.” Don’t drop out before the end of the race.

Keep an eye on the finish line.
