“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the Cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the Right Hand of the Throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2
Simple question; who is the author of your faith? Have you ever considered who is actually authoring your faith? Often we will find “we” are the author of our faith through our zealous self efforts. We are fighting a fight that has already been won by Jesus Christ on Calvary’s Cross. Instead of becoming a new creature in Christ through faith, we continue to try and improve the old creature through humanistic psychology wrapped in a religious package.
Run with patience the race that is set before you. Fight the good fight of faith…faith in Jesus Christ, Who He is and what He has done on Calvary’s Cross for whosoever will believe. Look unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith.
