We all want our lives to count for something significant.The apostle Paul was in a Roman prison facing death when he gave Timothy this honest appraisal of his own life and ministry. Like a prizefighter, he had made it to the last round. Like a distance runner, he was right at the tape and still in full stride. He expressed great joy in knowing that he had lived his life without compromising his faith in God.
One thing God wants from each of us is our faithfulness. He wants us to remain true to him. Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, Jesus will enable you to faithfully complete your life’s race.
A life marked by faithfully walking with God is a life that truly counts. At the end of your life, whatever else you think you’ll look back on — interests, accomplishments, acquisitions — nothing will compare with the satisfaction of knowing that you invested your life in spiritual things that really last.
Better to face God confident that you did it his way than any other way.
