Was thinking about how Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith…how it is He who draws us to Him, and He who gives us faith. He then gives us trials and tribulations with the strength to overcome, which produces more faith. He teaches us how to pray and even WHAT to pray and then shows us the fruit of our prayers, which produces even more faith… I think of it kinda like a book that He has written for us after we come to Him and then takes us thru the story… maybe sometimes the story changes as we walk and go down the wrong path at times, but He is faithful to bring us back. He will never lose a sheep.
He starts the work in us from the beginning and finishes it in us through to the end by His Spirit in us.
