“Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win.”

I Corinthians 9:24 (NASB)

It has been said, “It’s not so much about how you start but how you finish.”  Will you make that last exerted effort to push with all you’ve got to be a winner when everything and everyone around you is saying you’re not going to make it or your business is going to fail and those hopes and dreams you have are finished? Are you ready to persevere regardless of the circumstances or the odds? Aren’t you thankful that Jesus didn’t get right up to the end and quit on the cross? “I’m not going through with this, it hurts too much.” No, He didn’t give up. He kept going. He finished strong. What about you?


I will make that extra effort and take that extra step and persevere to the end, finishing strong.
