Unto the End

The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. What a fool you have been! From now on you will be at war. – 2 Chronicles 16:9

For most of his life, Asa (king of Judah) served God, but his last six years were a dismal failure. It seems that Asa stopped paying attention to his Creator and began to trust in himself. Even when he became deathly ill, the king refused to cry out to God and instead reached out to some pagan faith-healers.

The Christian life is not a sprint. It is a marathon. A race that will not end until this earthly life is over. Will we be faithful unto the end? Someone once told me that I would never be too old to throw it all away.

Be alert. Be accountable. Be faithful … unto the end.

By faithfulness we are collected and wound up into unity within ourselves, whereas we had been scattered abroad in multiplicity. – Augustine
