Key Takeaways

  • One day, the earthly things that we are pursuing will seem insignificant to us, as we often seek good things but not ultimate or eternal things.
  • Finishing well starts by living faithfully today.
  • In order to finish well, we must: Hold to sound doctrine; Live for the eternal reward; and Invest in the lives of people.
  • Bible doctrine is what the church believes, teaches, and confesses based on the truth of God’s Word.
  • Doctrine instructs us, guides us, protects us, and unites us.
  • Ideas have consequences, and bad ideas have victims.
  • You cannot love God if you do not know Him, and you cannot know Him without understanding correct Bible doctrine.
  • We will all stand before the Lord and give an account for how we lived our lives.
  • If you want to finish well, you need to keep the objective of glorifying God in mind.
  • Paul prioritized relationships and invested in people.
