The Key to Faith

The Key to Faith

Hebrews 12:2, NASB

Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

 

The key to faith is found in looking to the source of faith—Jesus. As the Bible says, “fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith” (Heb. 12:2, NASB). Your faith to believe is found in Jesus! The Amplified Bible puts it this way: “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].”

 

In other words, turn your eyes away from your own flaws, imperfections, failings, and mistakes, and fix your eyes on Jesus. The more you see Jesus and His finished work, the more you receive power to live a fulfilled life.  Faith in Christ reveals his salvation to you. Your sins are forgiven, Jesus holds nothing against you. You can start on a clean slate and have a brand-new beginning in Christ. The old is gone, and the new has come!
