Jesus, The Author & Finisher of my Faith
Jesus is simply the sweetest name I know. Not only is He my living Lord & Savior, but the Author & Finisher of my faith. I wouldn’t really know how to have faith if it weren’t for Him showing me how to have it. .
I'm talking about faith, as in believing. As in, having the confidence, tenacity, endurance, patience AND boldness to move past obstacles with full reliance that God is backing me up each and every step.
God tells us that He rewards us diligently by our believing. Look at everything Jesus Christ did while here on Earth. He walked on water, he healed the blind and brokenhearted. He cast out devils and healed the leper.
He always did His Father’s will. He was tempted in all points yet never sinned. He fulfilled all the laws (and there were a lot!). He shows me how to go to my Father. He is the point man, the forerunner. The Author & Finisher of my Faith.
When my faith is failing, I need to look no further than Him. Just read the Word, because faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17)
