THE NARROW PATH TO RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD - DAY 77
by Rev. Robert John Cericola, Carroll, OH - EUA
Looking to Jesus
Hebrews 12:2 (AMP) Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God. [Ps. 110:1.]
What a Savior we have! He endured the shame of the cross and took God’s wrath for us! And became the Author and finisher of our Faith! Praise God dearly beloved He will accomplish that which He has started in you!
Through Holy Spirit, Jesus will direct our path, mold us into His image, perfect our love, and lead us into a trusting relationship with Himself and our Father. The result of our trusting relationship is the energizing and activation of the measure of faith we received at Salvation.
When the world seems to be caving in on you, Look to Jesus! When the finances are lacking, look to Jesus! When those you love mock you, Look to Jesus! Don’t focus on the problem, look to Jesus who will calm the storm and infuse you with faith to carry on! All you have to do is stay on the narrow path by obeying the commandment to love and He will complete that which He started!
Oh, Glory how wonderful, how marvelous, because of Jesus, faith to believe is available for all, eternal life is available to all! Stay on the Narrow Path and enjoy your fellowship with Jesus and our Father! He will complete that which He has started in your life.
