Finishing Well

10 07 2015

mountain and valley1We are in a series called maturity in our ever shifting atmosphere.  Last time we explored God-given maturity and beginning well. Today we are looking finishing well.

When I think of finishing well these words, he who began a good work in you… from Philippians 1 come to mind. Let’s look at the whole verse.

“In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Php 1:4-6

Paul is speaking of those people who partnered with him in the spreading of the gospel. He is confident that God who began a good work in them, to follow Christ, will carry them through to the very last day of their lives.

The key to finishing well is relying on God. Hebrews 12:2 tells us “fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of faith”. It is in keeping your eyes focused on God and looking to at Jesus’ life as our model we learn how to finish well.

Two years ago, God gave a vision of an Oregon Tabernacle Tent and how 10 people would sew into this work and finance thetabernacle tent to buy purchase of this tent. Some have prayed into this vision, others have given to its purchase and this week CJM purchased the 20×20 tent. This phase of the journey is finishing well, having come through the believing for its purchase. It took keeping our eyes focused on God, his plans and purposes to see it come into reality. It seems a long time coming, yet as CJM purchased the tent I thought, “really God are we ready to move forward?” So we are off to another beginning and I know God will bring the Oregon Tabernacle Tent mission to completion as we keep our eyes fixed and focused on him!
