Rank #7: Brave Men S2E17: Endurance, Finishing Strong
This is the issue that so many of us are facing today – how will I finish this adventure called life? And, what does it take to finish strong?
Every life has obstacles, and most often the largest obstacle is not the devil, our neighbor or our culture – it’s us. To live well and finish strong will require a clear understanding of what it takes – and how we can acquire what it takes.
What you do in life becomes history, but what you put into motion becomes your legacy. The great biblical leader Gideon had a massive start – but didn’t finish well. How did that happen? Is it possible to start with great passion but finish without a purpose?
In a basketball game, what we see visible on the court is the result of hundreds of practice hours invisible to us … hours that were committed to by the players. Fully committed to becoming better players, athletes. What we desire to see in the visible must first be apprehended in the invisible. Endurance is an invisible quality with a visible result.
Paul said, “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” Philippians 3:12 NIV
Remember, your life is not about your present circumstances… they will change. But conducting your life well through the circumstances comes from endurance, faith and hope.

Rank #8: Brave Men S2E14: Brotherhood
One of the most overlooked healthy practices of Jesus was this – he had friends. Too often we look at what he did rather than how he lived. We think of the people around him as just cogs in a divine project – disciples who were there to get a job done. But more important to his life, and to their development, was that they were friends.
Brotherhood marked the life of Jesus. They did life together. And what they learned from him wasn’t just from sermons – it was experiencing him living life every day.
Friendship builds character. Friendship makes us healthy. Healthy friendships build our faith. Building healthy friendships is one of the core ingredients in becoming strong in faith and spirit.
Jesus said this, “I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in His slaves. Now you are My friends, since I have told you everything the Father told Me. You didn’t choose Me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using My name. This is My command: Love each other.” John 15:15-17

Rank #15: Brave Men S2E15: Forgiveness
One of the most powerful moments in a person’s life is when we turn from our past, the hurts, regrets, and disappointments - and move into our future. The pathway to move forward is through forgiveness. Forgiveness is the most powerful tool to launch into a fresh new start.
Forgiveness releases. Unforgiveness holds on to the past. Whether your last year or two was good or bad, the only way to face a new start is to let go of the past. It no longer defines you … it is part of your life, but not part of your future.
Jesus said, “When you forgive others, you release from your heart the negative thoughts that are there. If you don’t forgive others, you will retain the hurts and shame from things you’ve done or things that have happened to you.” John 20:21-23.
When Christ forgave you and me – it released us of our past. For many of us, forgiving ourselves is the largest battle.
It’s a new life – no longer held back by your past. If we don’t walk through forgiveness then our past is our future.

Rank #16: Brave Men S2E20: Hope Is Alive
Jesus did most of his miracles in the streets, homes and farmer's markets of his day. Hope has always been found in the community. HOPE IS ALIVE. Hope has a name. Hope is right where you are.
Here's a word of extremely practical hope. Not the cheerleader type - but the RUACH, presence of God type of hope. The Lord gives us hope, but hope is always delivered by people.
The enemy hates your guts - but God loves you with a passion. And God has always won every battle.
Romans 15:13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."

Rank #17: Brave Men S2E16: Your Daily Routine
Your daily routine can reduce anxiety and stress, build wisdom and courage … or it can do the opposite. We are what we allow to become routine – or we can become what we purpose to make a disciplined habit. We can choose wholeness of heart and mind. But, it takes a decision.
Recent studies say 68% of teens in America feel a sense of depression or have acute anxiety … in the most affluent and dynamic culture to ever appear on planet earth – we’re expanding our knowledge but shrinking our hearts.
I believe there’s a solution – and it simply starts the moment you wake up in the morning. How you start your day, your core foundational launching ritual is what will create the atmosphere of your heart and mind throughout your day. Everything lives or dies based on an atmosphere.
It’s said that 40 percent of what we do each day is done without really thinking. It’s just routine. Are you compounding the chaos of your life just by what you have allowed to become a routine – or can you change that by building new habits?
What’s your daily ritual? How do you start and end your day?
What’s your daily habit for intimacy with God? This is the basic core issue. Because intimacy with God produces a heart that makes the right decisions. Wisdom and courage are in your power of choice.

Rank #19: Brave Men S2E28: John Tesh - John Tesh has a Tattoo
John Tesh has a tattoo on his left arm. Today – we find out what it says. John was one of the most successful television personalities in the nation when he walked away to follow his love of music. Now he’s considered one of the premier composers and music artists in the world. In fact, John wrote the theme to many of the sports themes we’ve all heard including the theme for the NBA on NBC, “Roundball Rock” considered one of the greatest sports themes of all time.
John went from being homeless in his early twenties into an unprecedented season that saw him become one of the leading newscasters in New York, cohost of the Olympics, Tour de France, Wimbledon, The U.S. Open and much more.
After leaving that and becoming a world-class musician, five years ago John ran into the brick wall of cancer … and when the doctors told him and his wife Connie Sellecca that he should ‘get his affairs in order’ they had to make a huge choice. Here’s the inside story from an international star and man who is following Jesus with all his heart.
