“Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize.” — Philippians 3:13-14It’s not so much how you start but how you finish. 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. Today is Part THREE of his 4-part teaching series: Finishing Strong. You can receive the entire “Finishing Strong” Teaching on DVD–along with a full-color “Finishing Strong” custom print–with your single gift or monthly gift of any amount to Intentional Living.
