WILL YOU FINISH?
Is There anything more tragic than an unfinished life, a life that had a great foundation, but that never was brought to completion?

There have been so many people who started strong into the faith. They were impacted by the gospel, convicted of their sinfulness, and wanted to start brand new with God and He gave them that start, but somewhere along the way, they became sidetracked and the spiritual life that they could have had, the possibilities in their walk with God, their family, and their career, sits unfinished in a vacant field, as it were.

I have one word for each of you. Finish.

Billy Sunday was a pro Baseball player in the early 1900's who became one of the most famous preachers of his day and laid the groundwork for Billy Graham in Crusade Evangelism. Billy Sunday said "Stopping at third base adds no more to the score than striking out."

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7

It doesn't matter how well you started if you fail to finish.
