THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Word play with meaning.
"Pro" is the opposite of "con."
Therefore, "PROgress" must be the opposite of "........"
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.
Jesus is the "Author" of faith.
He began the work of faith before the work of creation.
Jesus is the "Finisher" of our faith.
He will culminate the work of faith with the end of this creation and the beginning of a new one.
Also, Jesus is the SUSTAINER of our faith.
All during our lives, amid every joy and every difficulty, we are to keep our eyes of faith upon Jesus!
Never let the progress of your faith be measured by your action of faith.
All progress of our faith should be measured by our SOURCE of faith.
By constantly "looking unto Jesus," we will find HIS power in our living of faith.
