The Finish Line

But my life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned to me by the Lord Jesus -- the work of telling others the good news about God's wonderful kindness and love. (Acts 20:24 NLT)

   It takes determination, dedication, and commitment to run a marathon.  The runner has one goal in mind -- the finish line.  In a hundred yard dash, one quick glance back at an opponent can mean the difference between first and fourth place.  This is why coaches and trainers emphasize over and over -- keep your eye on the tape at the finish line.  Only one person can win the gold medal -- the victor.

   The key to success in winning the race of life is commitment.  What is your level of commitment?  Are you prepared for a marathon?  If you have not already done so, begin your training by committing each day to the Lord. Ask Jesus to give you the desire and abilities to follow in his steps.  Make a commitment to be a winner.

Thought for the Day: God's finish line ends at heaven's pearly gates.
