Ending the Journey

For some, the prospect of death is a distant thought.  For others, it is a pressing reality.  For all, unless the Lord returns soon, it is the fated finish line we must cross before we stand face to face with our Holy Marker and Righteous Judge.   How should Christians approach the end of their journey?  They should end their journey in the same way they began (and have since proceeded in) it, by persevering faith in Christ and repentance from sin.

2 Timothy 1:8-12

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher, which is why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that day what has been entrusted to me.
