Finishing Well – Big Idea
Dr. Grassi often says: Let us focus on doing what is important, rather than trying to be important. Finishing Well means we cannot do everything, so we say no to the unimportant so we have time and energy to what is important.
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 1 Corinthians 9:24
Does that truly mean only one wins? If so why compete? No thankfully. It means that we should run the race with all the intentionality to win the race. The grace of God accepts all who have accepted him and Savior and Lord. To do what’s important we have to remove distractions so we can focus on the race – which is what is important. When it comes to how you are running your race, how would you rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest?
