Its not how we start the racethat matters its how we finish our course as paul writes in the scriptures that we fulfill our assignments our purpose God 's plan here on earth every believer has a plan and purpose to fulfill.

Deo Rwanda 's comment contains truth to my life, and you know its truth when you first shy away from analyzing yourself. I should not fear trials, persecution nor suffering. I am constantly praying for blessing in this life and I should welcome the tests of faith, call upon the Holy Spirit to guide me safely and faithfully and store my treasures in the LORD in heaven. I pray to be blessed with the gift of faithful witnessing to all the wonders that have been worked in my life in Jesus name.

Many begin the race, not all finish the race caurse its a faith race, the devil is after your faith, caurse its the only thing that overcomes him. Will the LORD find faith when He returns?

As believers we must walk by faith and not by sight. As we live our everyday life we must live in line with the Word. We should never stop serving God no matter how tough things get. Then when our time on earth is up, like Paul we can say we have fought a good fight, we have finished the course and we have kept the faith.

This faith walk is a fight walk. I must fight to keep the faith that my Lord has given to me and add to it. I we start with a measure and add to. It is a walk fight to the end.

Christian life is a life of commitment, determination, dedication, devotion, focus etc. It is a personal race in which every body on earth will give account just like Apostle Paul "i have fought a good fight, i have finished my course " This verse tells us that, every Christian has assigned to a particular task or assignment to perform on this planet earth, after the completion of the assignment or task, he she can finally say, he she has finished his her course. To succeed in this assignment, faith is what we need.

Paul is making it so clear that the christian race is not just any race but a race that must be run a target and determinations and expectations because their fight to figh and some bitter cups to drink from and also are prices and crowns awaiting those that finished well.

we have to wrestle against all manner of gossip,malace,deceit,lust and anything that diverts us from the way of faith and stops us from directing our minds and effort towards our callind.
Deo-Rwanda's comment on 2013-10-17 08:51:34:
Nowadays, the majority of those who call themselves christians are cowards, fearing persecution and suffering, wanting to grow rich in this world and become the poorest and the least in the kingdom of God. People of that kind are enemies of the cross. Brothers and sisters, lest and be on guard because Jesus is near.

i think paul saying that he has fought the good fight, finished his course and kept the faith should be a great challenges that may confront every believers to also do more as he did for we shall be rewarded if we don't grow weary in his work.

Notice Paul said he has finished the race, not that he beat everyone else...he finished the race and he kept the faith. The fight is with our (my) individual demons of darkness and his (our) prize is knowing we have kept the faith.

As we fight the good fight of faith there are victories and defeats. We sometimes have to regroup and get direction from our Commander. In the end we plant our flag, as it were, at the top of the hill. The final victory is ours, to the praise of HIS glory.
Don Adams's comment on 2013-03-10 13:38:07:
Paul did not say that he had won a fight or that he had won the race. He did say that he had finished her course. His course was unique to him. His is not the same as yours or mine. In the Christian race, finishing is the important thing. In Matthew 24:13 we read "But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." But alas, so many people never enter the race and this is a race that can only be entered into by invitation. I believe the HOLY SPIRIT call is to everyone but so many do not heed the call. In Matthew 22:14 we read "For many are called, but few are chosen."
