John 4:34, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish His work”

 How many things have you started that you have not finished? Every day, we start new projects, we give birth to new ideas but how many of them do we actually finish?

 In life today, the problem we are facing is that we are doing now what we ought to have done earlier. The lessons we failed to learn when we were yet small, we have to learn now. We don’t finish what we started. That is why we have carryover. What you should have finished yesterday, you are doing today, what you should have finished in the morning, you have to do in the afternoon. Life is too short to spend time on things that have no lasting value or significance. There is an assignment for every moment. As Christians, we are in a race. Apostle Paul encourages us in 1 Corinthians 9:24 to run in such a way as to get the prize because the owner of the race is not the beginner, but the finisher. Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.

 Jesus Christ was a finisher. When Jesus said on the cross, “It is finished!” (John 19:30), with these words, the bridge that linked man to God was complete. This is the great Gospel benefit – God took away our sin and purchased for us total pardon. That was His mission. Jesus started his ministry when HE was 30 years old and his ministry lasted for 3 and a half years, during which HE performed so many miracles and touched so many lives, He changed the entire history of the world.  

 God always asks us to do what we cannot do ourselves so that He can teach us how to do them. This means you cannot be a finisher who makes the difference without God. When we rely on our strength instead of involving God, we cannot make a difference and achieve uncommon goals. Many have done much by outward restraints but lacked the character of God in their resolution. If you continued your Christian life the way you began it, what a blessed life that would be! The sky would have been your limit. You need God to put in you the will and desire to complete what you have started. You may have good intentions, but Apostle Paul admonishes us, “Now finish the work, so that your eager willingness to do it may be matched by your completion of it, according to your means” 2 Cor 8:11

 Look how far you have come! You cannot afford to give up! Ask God to give you the spirit of a finisher. Ask Jesus to put in you the desire and will to complete what you have started today in Jesus’ name.




“Where we desire vengeance, God pursues mercy. Where we encourage pride, God exalts the humble, where we focus on the outside, God looks at the heart. That is the greatest mystery of all – the God who created us now dwells not in temples built with human hands but within us by faith in our heart. (Acts 17:24).”


“IIf you enter a lift to go to the penthouse of a skyscraper building, how many of you would first press to go to down to the underground car park? No one! Yet, in God’s way of doing things, it is our job to submit and humble ourselves under Him and His job to lift us up in His time and in His way. In other words, humility is God’s lift for elevation.”


“In Matthew 22:21 Jesus said, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” What is of God must return to Him. With the Word of God in your heart, you can one day return to Him in the world of glory.”
