Races are won at the finish line not the starting line, and so it is with life, marriage, investing and everything else in life that's important. It is not how you start, it is how you finish that matters.
John 2 records the story of a wedding that started good but was about to become an embarrassment when they ran out of wine. Yet in miraculous fashion, Jesus helped them finish strong when He turned water into wine. Then it was said, "You have saved the best for last."
And isn't that what we want? We want our last years to be our best years.
1. To finish strong we must pray. Mary wisely brought the concern to Jesus. "They are out of wine." Is prayer your first response or last resort?
2. To finish strong we must obey. The servants did as Jesus directed. They filled the water jars with water, and notice they filled them to the brim. How is your obedience bucket? Is it half-full or do you fill it to the brim?
"Trust and obey, for there's no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey."
