Live solid, stay sound. Be big in prayer and with your motives and behavior. God is big, the Spirit thinks big, and Jesus never was given to smallness of character. Still isn't. Calvary was BIG!

Stand firm in the Lord. ~ Paul in Philippians 4:1

Toward the tail end of his earthly Christian experience here, the apostle Paul declared, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (2 Tim. 4:7). 

You can fight.. right (via believing prayer and obedience to Christ), you can stand, and you can with joy in side ..finish strong in the Lord. 
“To become truly great, one has to stand with people, not above them.” ~ Baron de Montesquieu 
Stand strong in Christ. Wisely stand and fight to protect others, to build up, to help disciple, to win anyone who is willing to hear the Gospel.. no matter where they are from. Big bighearted in your witness even if you have unfinished goals, projects, trials to contend with. The size of the person dealing with the challenge or problem is more important than the size of the problem. Live big–be big hearted, be big in how you handle things ..rather than small.
BIG THINKING > small thinking!
How cool was it of Him (God) to non-permanently ditch the highest place of power and cushiness, to descend here to where the people actually lived… just to listen, to walk with, to example living before em!
Just to hear our hearts and words and not to point the finger accusation at em, or to talk down at them, but to be with, to really engage and to short-term and long-term help us! What was that even like for Jesus? Well, they killed Him on a tree, but he’s still the greatest–He rose on the third day. Couldn’t snuff Him out–still shining bright.  
"For God did not send the Son into the world to judge and condemn the world [that is, to initiate the final judgment of the world], but that the world might be saved through Him." John 3:17
