Finishing Strong

Finishing Strong

“I must be about My Father’s business.” Lk 2:49 NKJV

If the word quit is part of your vocabulary, chances are that the word finish isn’t. Finishing means staying on the job until it’s done. It’s about accountability and action, because even when you’re on the right track you’ll get run over if you just sit there. High achievers will tell you that life takes on meaning when you take responsibility for your actions and pursue your goals with purpose and passion. Nothing compares to “the rush” of crossing the finish line. The fact is, nobody remembers who finished second, except the guy who finished second! Co-authors B. J. Gallagher and Steve Ventura said the ten most important words in finishing strong are: “I won’t wait for others to take the first step.” The nine most important: “If it is to be, it’s up to me.” Eight: “If not me, who? If not now, when?” Seven: “Let me take a shot at it.” Six: “I will not pass the buck.” Five: “You can count on me.” Four: “It IS my job.” Three: “Just do it!” Two: “I will.” And the most important word: “Me.” Jesus was the greatest finisher of all time. At age twelve, He told His parents, “I must be about My Father’s business.” Later He told His disciples, “I must work the works of Him who sent Me” (Jn 9:4 NKJV). Facing the cross, He said, “For this cause I was born” (Jn 18:37 NKJV). And just before He died, He said, “It is finished!” (Jn 19:30 NIV). Then, having earned the right to become our advocate with God, He went back to heaven and “sat down” (Heb 10:12). Mission accomplished! So focus on finishing strong!
