Mark 14:26-28“ If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it —
To be a Christian, sell out for Him completely, no looking back. Plan on finishing well.
Finish every hour well: am I keeping short accounts?
Finish every day well: have I kept the faith today? Did my day show my faith in God? Was I pursuing righteousness throughout?
Finish every week well: do I come to the house of God readying to fellowship with other believers? Or am I self- consumed? Can I input into the lives of other believers?
Finish every month well: did we we get our tithe check in on time? Did I stay in the Word? What areas can I see growth in my walk?
Finish every year well: was I consistent in my beliefs? Did I make new friends, even new disciples for God? Can those around me count on me to be a beacon of hope pointing to God? Is my life showing: SEE what God did! SEE Him at work!
Finish every decade well: is there a definite difference in my life from where I was at 10 years ago? Am I saying," Look at what God has done! See what His is doing now! Guess at what he is going to do!"
Finish well: Dear God, I love you, no matter what. I promise to finish well. And it is ALL YOU when it happens. Amen
Finish well: Will You?
