HIGHER EVERYDAY DAILY DEVOTIONAL
FRIDAY FEBRUARY 05, 2021
TOPIC: THE FINISHER OF OUR FAITH
TEXT: HEBREWS 12:1-10
MEMORY VERSE: “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” (HEBREWS 12:2).
Acceptable faith in God must find its root in Christ and His atoning sacrifice on the cross for humanity. Hence, Billy Graham asked, "Why is it that the cross has become the symbol of Christianity? It is because at the cross Jesus purchased our redemption and provided a righteousness which we could not ourselves earn." In other words, true and saving faith originates from genuine relationship with Christ through repentance and faith in His finished work on the cross of Calvary (Acts 4:12). He is our Saviour, He is Emmanuel - God with us; He is Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end; He is King of kings and Lord of lords, the everlasting Father. The Lord assures us of a safe ride through the many tribulations of this world. "Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them" (Hebrews 7:25). Let us endeavour to live the rest of our lives for His glory alone! He is coming again for us.
