The Finisher Of Our Faith

Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2 NKJV)

But the Spirit produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control. Galatians 5:22

Your lives will be filled with the truly good qualities which only Jesus Christ can produce, for the glory and praise of God. Philippians 1:11

 

Our faith can never be complete

Without Christ’s grace and help.

Our faith cannot be finished

or perfect

Without Him

 

 

He is the one

That bears fruits

In us

 

He started it all

He called us

He cleansed us

And became our father

Therefore, we are absolutely nothing

Without Him

 

Christ is grace, glory and mercy

Our faith cannot grow

Except by the power of Christ

 

We must keep looking unto Him

And at Him

We must fix our gaze

On His words

And His life

And imitate Him

 

As we meditate on His word

Let us also pray

That we will be

Given grace and power to understand His word

It is only this spiritual understanding

That will give birth to faith

And other fruits and virtues

Necessary for

Christian growth and maturity.

    Very good. I agree…

    You shall know them by their fruit.

    The fruit shows how much of Christ is forming in us. We sometimes try to go the other way and produce fruit to show we are Godly, instead like you have said, you fix yourself solely upon Christ and the fruit will come from His life out of you.

      Thank you for the very enlightening comment – so well said. The fruits truly show how much of Christ is forming in us. They proceed from His life out of us. Blessings πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ˜Š
