2 Timothy 4:7; “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”

"When I have learned to do the Father's will, I shall have fully realised my vocation on earth" (Carlo Carretto). There is no higher achievement than completing the assignment God gives us. So, we need ask ourselves, are we completing the task that He has given us in the manner He would have us do that? Whilst I can speak particularly from a worship/preaching perspective, an area that Satan gets involved in wholesale, it happens in any ministry and we need to understand where it’s coming from. That we wouldn't let pride, selfish gain, or any other method Satan would throw in the mix to ultimately thwart and divide a growing community or ministry. May you run your race in a way that you will be satisfied with later. It is heartening to be able to look back and have no regrets. Paul was not always popular, nor was he usually comfortable; but he remained faithful. That is what really counted. Paul’s life and ministry provide for us a powerful example for modelling Christ today. Not only did he “fight the good fight,” but he also “finished the race” and “kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7).
