The Finish Line

Hebrews 12:2 KJV 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.
 
If we are to run our race with patience, we need to know where the finish line is. If thre is no finish line, then it cannot be rightly called a race. Today’s verse gives us the finish line. The finish line is Jesus Christ. Jesus is the beginning and the end of our faith. He is the measuring stick of our growth in faith. Jesus is the One that each of us should aspire to pattern our life after. We, like Jesus, should run our race with joy. In and of ourselves, we cannot accomplish this. But Jesus can and will help us finish our race with joy.
