Four Essential Elements for Finishing Well

One of my favorite verses in all of Scripture is I John 2:28:

“And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming” (NKJV).

The Lord spoke this verse to me when I was younger so I would live today with eternity in view. I want to live my days in order to stand confidently before Christ at the end.

How do we do this? Consider these four essential elements for finishing well from author Jerry Bridges.

Jerry Bridges:

  • Daily time of focused personal communion with God
  • Daily appropriation of the Gospel
  • Daily commitment to God as a living sacrifice
  • Firm belief in the sovereignty and love of God

What do you think of these? Would you add anything to the list?
