During the 2015-2016 NBA season, the Golden State Warriors embarked on a historic journey and concluded the regular season with an impressive 73-9 record. However, this achievement proved insufficient as they ultimately fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the finals. This outcome serves as a poignant reminder that it is not only the beginning that matters, but also how one finishes.
King Saul was the first monarch appointed by God for his people. He was tall, handsome and very attractive. He began his reign with great promise, but sadly, his indecisiveness and vacillating attitude ultimately led to his downfall in later years. Tragically, Saul met his demise by taking his own life, falling upon his own sword.
In today’s sermon, Elder Bill will delve into Psalm 119:169-176, a passage that provides guidance on how to finish well in the eyes of God. It offers valuable instructions for us to consider as we seek to conclude our journeys in a manner that aligns with God’s desires.
Determined To Finish Well
The Passage: Psalm 119:169-176
Let my cry come before you, O Lord;
give me understanding according to your word!
170 Let my plea come before you;
deliver me according to your word.
171 My lips will pour forth praise,
for you teach me your statutes.
172 My tongue will sing of your word,
for all your commandments are right.
173 Let your hand be ready to help me,
for I have chosen your precepts.
174 I long for your salvation, O Lord,
and your law is my delight.
175 Let my soul live and praise you,
and let your rules help me.
176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek your servant,
for I do not forget your commandments.
