Finish Strong- Weekend Rewind

25 Jan

Series: Elijah

Sermon in a Sentence: Focus on Him, and Finish Strong

Understandable Message: It is so easy to get distracted in our lives. My favorite example is from the movie UP, “SQUIRREL!” If we allow ourselves to get distracted, we can find ourselves so far off track, it feels like we can never make it back. In order to prevent ourselves from getting lost, and to finish strong, there are a few things that we need to do:

  1. Fix our sights on the prize- If heaven is our prize, we need to focus on Jesus!
  2. Train to win- Get in the word, pray, meet with other believers
  3. Expect there will be difficulties- Know that being a Christ follower will not be smooth sailing
  4. Find a coach- Someone who has walked longer, and further than you. Someone who is older, wiser, and will challenge you! (Think Mick from Rocky)
  5. NEVER give up- Do not settle for less than the prize! “I don’t wanna gain the whole world and lose my soul.”- Toby Mac
