Perfecter (Hebrews 12:1-2)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is “perfecter.”  I love this one because it is not in the dictionary… or at least to my knowledge.  Which makes it even more cool and unique.  God sent his only Son to take care of the sin stuff that we could not do on our own.  That is why the writer of Hebrews is reminding the peeps that it is extremely important not to lose sight of the whole reason for doing the Christian life.  It is kind of sobering to know that even back then, so close to the time JC was on earth, it was difficult to stay focused. 

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
~Heb. 12:2

JC was a pioneer to a faith you and I could hold true. My question is: how are you letting the Savior be the perfecter in your life?  Think of specific ways that the Son touches your life and works to shape you.  My prayer is that you fix your eyes on the eternal throne, knowing that one day God will bring you into everlasting glory.  It’s a pretty crazy world, and sometimes we lose sight of what is important.  Don’t allow yourself to get caught up in the madness. Hold fast!

Praying for you,
