Our Faith is in Jesus

Hebrews 11 provides a chronicle of the heroes of faith from the Old Testament.  It ends with “and these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:  God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.”

Hebrews 12:11-3 says “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside very weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run the patience the race that is set before, Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endure the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.  For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lets ye be wearied and faint in your minds”.

Both the Old and New Testament point to Christ.  In 2 Peter 1:3 it tells us that he has given us “all things that pertain unto life and godliness, though the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue”.    I believe these scriptures tell us he has given everything we need, but it is up to us individually to lay aside every weight.  We sometimes sing a song, “My hope is built on nothing less, than Jesus’ blood and righteousness, I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus name, On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand”.  It goes on to say “when all around my soul give way, he then is all my hope and stay”.  I’m thankful Jesus is that  rock and anchor to the soul.
