God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit have no start or finish. They have always inhabited eternity but in the beginning of the creation of our world, time was set in motion. The earth had a start by Almighty God that would go forward through history to God’s desired end.
All starts have an end. Some starts initiate big events and things, some bring in smaller and shorter matters. A big start is when our life begins at birth and goes right on to our death. We have big starts in between the beginning and end of our lives. Like starting to walk and talk. Starting our education and being trained for life’s opportunities. Starting a different life with a marriage partner and then starting a family in a new home.
There are starts also for smaller things in our lives. Every sentence we speak has a start and every thought we have has a beginning. What an important word start is. Our whole life is made up of starts and finishes. Of course not everything goes well as there are bad as well as good starts. Sometimes we start out on a road to sin like David on the slippery slope to adultery. False starts cause us to go back to square one like the over eager runner but God is forgiving when we ask his forgiveness.
The counterpart to start is finish; you cannot have one without the other. It would appear from the Word of God that it is the finish that really matters. It gives an example of a person living the first part of his life acceptably but failing badly in the latter and God’s judgement pronouncing failure. However, another person who lived exactly the same but the other way round and finished well was accepted. So we see that starting is important but the finish even more so.
When we leave this world behind and go to be with the Lord we shall be entering another era. This has to be the best start ever!
