In modern Christianity, we are too often impressed with strong starts and forget that it’s the finish that really counts. Maybe it’s because we have a lot of spectators and cheerleaders at the beginning of our race and very few in the middle.

Each of us—whether a campus missionary, administrator, or church planter—has a call from God to finish our race to reach every nation. Praying that we have the passion, focus, and faith to “do the will of the one who sent me and to finish the work.”
