"Author and Perfecter of Faith" - Day 31
Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the AUTHOR AND PERFECTER OF FAITH, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
In the chapter before this, we read a very long line of incredible people of faith. They were people who performed miracles, spoke to God directly, were martyred for their belief, who led nations and conquered kingdoms. But Jesus was the one who wrote and perfected all of their stories. Everything they did would have been for nothing if it wasn't for Jesus destroying death. Thanks be to God for Jesus, who makes all of our stories worthwhile!
