The Author

 

Charlene and I are authors. Authors use words to convey meanings, stories, information, entertainment, and comfort. Jesus was the first author. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1). “And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him” (Hebrews 5:9). He wrote the greatest story ever told—the story of redemption. He not only told the story, He lived the story. He included us as characters in the plot. We are the recipients of the love story of Jesus.

“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the Cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2). He authored faith. Through the Cross, He brought us out of slavery and set us free. He endured the Cross and its shame for His Bride. He authors faith in each of us who believe and doesn’t leave us there but finishes faith’s work in our lives. By grace through faith we have become part of the wonderful love story.
