How you start a race is critical. Start too fast and you'll be disqualified. Start too slow and you'll be hard pressed to catch up. The Bible says that as Christians we are in a race and that we are to run in such a way so as to receive the prize. While we have assurance through faith in Jesus Christ of how things are going to end, how we start greatly affects how we finish. This sermon series is about starting the year off on the right foot, so that we can live out God's purposes and, ultimately, finish well.
