Michael Jordan is one of the greatest finishers the game of basketball has ever known. If the Bulls were close at the end of a game, you knew with MJ on the floor; you had a chance. He didn’t just finish during games that did not matter either, he finished in the playoffs and finals.
Do you ever feel like in the game of life you need a finisher like that?
Maybe it is . . .
- A season of suffering you are going through.
- A particular sin you wish you could overcome.
- A guilty conscience you are trying to work to make right.
Let me introduce you to the greatest finisher the WORLD has ever known . . . JESUS!
I love Job’s reply to the suffering he was experiencing is his life: “For He will complete what he appoints for me.” (23:14)
Paul speaking about the salvation and sanctification of the Philippi believers says, “And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you, will bring it to completion at the day of Christ.” (1:6)
Jesus taking the wrath of God that was rightfully our payment said, “It is finished!” (John 19:30)
