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.
He is the author and the finisher of our faith. Kind of sounds like a contradiction but it is not. He is the author of our faith because by Him all was created. He carries on the work of faith and gives that which is the end of it – eternal life. He is not only the Author and the Finisher of our faith, He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. He is the Bright Morning Star and the Maker of the Day. He is the Rock and the Potter and the Lion and the Lamb. He is the Way and the Truth and the Life and the Ancient of Days. He is Sovereign over all and my Redeemer, Saviour and Salvation. He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He is Jesus, my Strength and my Shield and my Faithful Friend. And He sits at the right hand of God – interceding for us until we are called home!! Hallowed be His Names!!!
