Finish Strong – Part2

The Apostle Paul is one of the greatest heroes of the NT.  He wrote much of the NT, started churches everywhere, preached the Gospel to thousands.

But Paul also encountered incredible pain and discomforts along the way.  (Read 2 Cor 11:23-28)  Even through all of those things, Paul did not give up.  Why?  Because he wasn’t operating on his own strength, but on God’s.

When he wanted to quit, he said that God spoke these words to him.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Cor 12:6)

Even if your life doesn’t go the way you planned…finish strong.

Work hard at the job, even if it isn’t what you saw yourself doing in college.
Raise your family with honor, integrity and character, even if you can’t give them everything they ever wanted.
Serve faithfully in your ministry, don’t let your character or moral issues cause you to quit.

In every race it’s not about how you start…but how you finish. You may not come in first, but what really matters to God is that you simply finish strong!

Let these words of Paul be your words.  I pray that they are mine!
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (2 Tim 4:7)

  1. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else
    encountering problems with your site. It looks like some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Thank you

  2. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog
    platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog
    soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to
    ask!

  3. Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you

  7. What you published made a bunch of sense. However, what about this?
    what if you wrote a catchier post title? I ain’t saying your content isn’t
    good, however suppose you added something that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Finish Strong – Part2 – Tim Moore is kinda vanilla.

    You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post titles to
    grab people to click. You might add a related video or a pic or two to
    grab people interested about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it would
    bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
