Hebrews 12:2 KJV
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.
The secret of the believers running the race for the promised victory “Looking unto Jesus.”
He ALONE is the author and finisher of our faith.
He ALONE died for sin and rose again.
He ALONE was sent by the Father to pay the penalty for our sins.
He ALONE is the Way the Truth and the Life (John 14:6).
You cannot run with an assured victory if you are not “looking unto Jesus” If Jesus is not the Author and Finisher of your faith you will lose the race!
“The disposition, grace, ability, and success which they have for running, it is all from him; from the beginning of the work of faith unto the end of it.” (Matthew Pool)
