Title - I Shall End Well

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi

Main Text:- Deut 32:29

In life there is something we ought to consider. Not everyone that starts a race will get the winning price. 
For example, in the last Olympics, all contending athletes were involved in the race. However, only one person received the Gold Medal. 
In like manner, we are all in race and the way we end the race matters to God.

From the very day of your birth in this world, your race has begun. We see an example of this account in the book of Matthew 2. 
As soon as Jesus was born, King Herod attempted killing baby Jesus. Similarly, as soon as you are born, your race begins. Deuteronomy  32:29

Categories of Racers  

1) Poor Starters that Ended poorly: Luke 23:39
An example is the thief that was hung on the cross next to Jesus. He started poorly and still ended his life poorly. 

2) Poor Starters that Ended well - Luke 23:40-43,  2 Tim 4:6-7, 1 Tim 1:13

3) Racers that started well yet ended poorly: 1 Sam 28:3-18, 1 Chron 10:13-14

4) Racers that started well and ended well: John 14:30, John 19:30


What Category do you fit in?
Do you still have interest in the things of God?
Are you on the narrow path?
Are you mindful of where you will spend your eternity?

Moral Lessons:

No matter how poorly you started, there is still hope to end well. If Christ could pray for Peter to end well, By Christ's Grace, you will end well

Prayer Point:

Lord I shall not perish with the World
