Bryan Loritts comes from a long legacy of faithful men and women, from his great, great grandfather Peter, an illiterate slave who loved the Word to his father, Dr. Crawford Loritts. Loritts honors this legacy by preaching from 1 Corinthians 9:24-27, urging us to be men and women who finish well. Paul urges his readers to run with radical excellence and to compete with sacrificial endurance. No Christians will have a free pass on suffering, but those who run with integrity in the midst of it can finish well. Loritts urges us to begin a legacy of faithfulness.
