Description


This is Steve and welcome back to another segment of Press On. This is called Finish Line.


Over the last several weeks I’ve talked to a number of people who are struggling emotionally and physically....and heard of many more.


As I reflect back on my growing up years I remembered a game my brothers and I would play. One at a time each of was given a football and we would run full speed at the others in an effort to cross a line considered the end zone. It was less about football and more about pumling the guy with the ball...it was brutal.. I remembered being massacred by my brothers. We would laugh, fight and sometimes cry in pain but the finish line always stayed in sight. Then it meant something else now it means something epic. Our lives...and what happens after that last breath leaves your body. 

Hear the words of the writer of Hebrews 12


Since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us” 


The truth is all of us have a race marked out before us and yes there is a finish line for some it will be the temporal things that this life momentarily offers. 

For others though that will not be enough because they reject that theirs lives are momentary and meaningless. 


There is much more to this conversation but for today think about this.


You will get pumbled get in life and it’s going to hurt but when your finish line is the eternal rather then the temporal it’s a life changer. 

So what do you do: 

1. As we run, we must “fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith” He’s the finish line.


2. Surround yourself with those who don’t take theirs eyes on the finish line Christ. I have a long time friend and group of guys who’s motto is “we get each other to the finish…even if it's ugly.



This Steve and until we meet again Press O
