“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.” — 2 Timothy 4:7That quote is from an aging Apostle Paul writing to his young pastor protege,Timothy. It’s not so much how you start but how you finish. Are finishing FAITHFUL? Competitions typically involve a lot of back-and-forth during the game (or race) but what really matters is who finishes first. In the New Testament Paul wrote: Many runners enter a race, and only one of them wins the prize. So run to win! (1 Corinthians 9:24) That’s what Dr. Randy wants for you—to finish strong.
