Can I ask you a personal question? Have you ever thought about quitting? Have you decided you are ready to stop being a Christian? Or stop going to church? Has somebody let you down, and it has hurt your heart, and you do not want anything to do with them or Christianity?
The fact of life is that it does not matter how you start out in life; what matters is how you finish up. One of the keys to making it in the Christian life is persistence. I want to talk today about how to last serving the Lord. It takes Teamwork. In the area that you are working.
I started thinking weeks ago, wondering what the one thing we should be doing every day? Encouraging each other, yes. Helping people, yes. Serving others, yes. Loving others, yes. Caring about others, yes. Everything we do should be “leading others to Jesus Christ.” But why don’t we? I am sure there are many reasons, but the main reason is not our top priority.
At the end of your life, if you were asked, “How can you determine if your life was worthwhile?” How would you answer that? You come to the end of your life and start reviewing it, and you say, “Did my life count? Did my life make a difference, an impact?” What are you going to look for? Wealth? Fame? Popularity? Pleasure? Experiences you had in life.
