Better- Finishing is better

Ecclesiastes 7:8 “Finishing is better than starting. Patience is better than pride.”

We all have unfinished business.

Revelation 3:1-2 “I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. 2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God.”

How do we finish strong?

  1. Make a Commitment

2 Corinthians 8:11 “Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means.”

Luke 22:42 "Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me..."

John 19:30 “It is finished”

2. Make it Public

It’s not really a commitment until you are accountable.

Proverbs 19:21 "Life and death are in the power of the tongue.”

3. Take the next step

Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”

Acts 20:24 “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task…."

2 Timothy 4:7 “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.”
