Our faith is authored and perfected by Jesus. He initiates and deepens our faithful relationship with Him. Faith is from Jesus and furthered by Jesus. We persevere to the finish line with fixed eyes on Jesus Christ, as we run wholeheartedly on the path marked out by God. Jesus persevered through the cross with His eyes fixed on the joy of re-uniting with God! Let us pray to keep our eyes focused on the prize of union with God, as we persevere in our faith that Jesus perfects!
