An author creates something new.
An author gives life to something that previously didn’t exist.
“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance 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 has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” – Hebrews 12:1-2, NKJV
Jesus is the author of our faith. God gave us our faith and the ability to believe in what Jesus has done for us.
And, yet, we are far from perfect in our faith. But Jesus is perfect and has finished our faith through his death and resurrection. He has given us a gift and we simply believe in what He has done and His word of love and truth.
If we keep our eyes on him, He will help us continue in this journey of faith in this life. The finish line is eternity with him.
