Finish Well!

Finish Well! by Keith Cook

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord... will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing." 2 Timothy 4:7, 8

A few years ago I met with one of Billy Graham's associates and I asked him what his goal was for the next few years of ministry. At that time, he said his number one goal was to help Dr. Graham finish well. Today Dr. Billy Graham is in Heaven with His Lord and Savior.

He then went on to say that most great leaders and ministers often lose focus and get off track at the end of a project or even at the end of their life. God wants all of us to finish well.

David, in the Bible, lost his focus once and stayed back from his job, allowing someone else to go off and fight for him. The Bible says that when it was time for kings to go out for war David was home looking and lusting at another man's wife. He should have been out finishing his work that God had given him, not home making excuses why he was not needed and letting his wandering eyes and lustful passions control his life.

Commit today to finish all you are doing for God well. Don't slack up or let others do your job. Make a mark and keep on making a difference.

Press on to the prize, finish well!

1. Have you lost your focus at any time while serving God?

2. What else could God be calling you to do to help others?

3. Who have you let do your job or made suffer because of your lack of focus?

4. Ask for forgiveness and thank those you regularly minister with for bearing with you and helping you be all God wants you to be!
