2 Timothy 4:7-8

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.
2 Timothy 4:7-8

At this time, the Apostle Paul was in prison in Rome awaiting his execution. He knew that the time of his departure from planet earth was coming, and he was so excited to meet the Lord in glory. You see, Paul had lived his Christian life sold out to Jesus. He finished his race in full stride, still on fire for Jesus Christ through tremendous difficulties and trials.

All too often, people face death without the humble confidence and joyful expectation that Paul had. So many people face death with regret and shame, knowing that they wasted much of their life off the course, pursuing things that will be left behind or simply spending too much time sitting on the bench.

No matter where you are today in your spiritual life, "it ain't over till it’s over." If you still have breath, you still have time to turn it around for Christ. Get back in the race and finish strong knowing that God has not given up on you. "Fight the good fight, finish the race, keep the faith!"
