We must keep our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.
Jesus is the author who finishes His work. His work is to perfect us — to perfect our faith, so we may endure through many trials, until finally glory comes. It’s through these trials that we grow, develop spiritually, and strive to be perfected.
With all that’s going on in our world, we must keep our eyes on Jesus, on His word, in order to keep growing and developing into what God wants for us to become. In order to do that, we must endure whatever we encounter: good or bad, tough or easy. This is the time to really get serious about our walk, our relationship with God.
As 2020 comes to an end, and we enter 2021, let it be a year where we allow God to perfect us, to build our faith in Him and His word, to allow our foundation to be built on a solid foundation, and develop our knowledge of Him and His ways. All one has to do is make a decision — God is first in my life, and whatever rough edges, the things that hold me back, will be purged and removed. That will come through a commitment — a decision of our will and a commitment to stay with it.
2021 can be a great year. Again, it’s your choice. Choose well!
Happy new year, and God bless.
Just a thought,
