Living from the Finished Line

Living From the Finish LineThe finished work of Jesus Christ

In a race everyone wants to be first at the finished line, and that’s the way we all should think. No one normally wants to lose, or even be second in a race. God created us that way! He created us to be winners in life. 1 Corinthians 13 says, “Love never fails”, therefore God has never lost. It does not matter how things look in the natural. God always sins and always will win in the end!

Jesus has already run our race for us. He has already run the race for us and our children. Jesus Christ did a marvelous thing for all of mankind. He ran our race for us to make sure we would win and not lose. No matter where you are or where you may live or what you are doing, if you are not “Living from the Finished Line”, you are not truly living. The reality of life is Jesus Christ! And the closer your child walks with Him, the more productive his or her life will be. Your child cannot and will not fail walking with God!

It is your child’s God given right to “Live from the Finished Line”. Everything your child will ever want, desire, or need is provided for in the written Word. God’s Word is called: “the Word of His grace” (Acts 20:32). It is through faith in what God has said that grace move in our lives to bring us into all that He has promised in His Word.

In reality every child has succeeded in life through Jesus Christ. This is why a mother needs to start her child off at the Finished Line! Jesus said, “It is finished.” (John 19:30)
