For many years Randy McKean advocated for a publishing ministry I led in Boston. I will always appreciate his support. Now he has written his own inspiring book titled Radical Faith.
One of his chapters is on “Finish Line Faith” and he points out that biblical faith is faith that finishes. Of course, we must have beginnings and often we only have beginnings because of faith. It takes faith to launch into new waters.
But great beginnings lose all their luster and even become a great source of disappointment or discouragement when there is no finish. As hard as it sometimes to begin, it is much more challenging to finish.
But biblical faith is faith that must "finish the race.” And while a variety of elements may be needed to finish, the key element is faith itself--a faith that clearly has as its object the God who gives us the power to keep running, keep building, keep loving, and keep on keeping on.
As I read Randy’s chapter, I asked myself, what have I begun that I need to finish? And do I believe God will give me the power to finish? How about you?
Randy’s book is available from Illumination Publications.
