Concluding Thought

Praying to finish strong is a prayer that will honor God. While its good to pray we finish a task or season of our life strong, it’s important to remember as Christians what we are called to. Jesus called us to make disciples and baptize them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)

In every task we do, in every job we work, in all of our life we should be striving to share the Gospel because that is how we will fulfill what Christ is calling us to do. So when we think about finishing strong, we must pray we will be bold to share the Gospel and love well.
