May 29, 2011 it looked like it was destiny, the day Dale Earnhardt Jr. was rounding the last lap of the Charlotte Motor Speedway. You could just imagine the script that was being set; it was memorial day, he was being sponsored by the national guard, and He was going to finally win for the first time in 105 races! Fans were hysterical stomping and cheering louder and louder. The moment promised much celebration for patriotism as Dale Earnhardt Jr. came around the backstretch of the Coca-Cola 600. Then suddenly it was over. The gas tank of his Chevrolet ran dry and Kevin Harvick sped right around him and stole the victory. The race was lost because Dale Earnhardt Jr ran out of gas on the last lap of his race.


Apply: Don’t run out of gas on the last lap of your race. Paul warns us in Galatians 6:9 - “And let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Jesus told the Ephesian church that had fallen in their race, to get up and “REPENT and do the things you did at first.” Through repentance, prayer, & bible study, rekindle the love you have for Christ so that you can say with Paul ’I have fought a good fight, I HAVE FINISHED MY RACE, I have kept the faith’.
