Names of Christ: My Redeemer

One of the names of Christ is Author and Finisher of our faith found in Hebrews 12:2 (NKJV): 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 has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

When I think of this verse, especially in the context of Christmas, I think of the great gift that Jesus was and is. He came to this earth in the most humble of circumstances, born of a virgin in the town of Bethlehem. Jesus was the long-awaited Messiah that God’s people had been waiting for, for centuries. And centuries of prophecy and His life bore that out. In His life, Jesus performed miracles and wonders and taught all of those around Him how to live.

But it wasn’t until His death on the cross that all of us were saved. “It is finished” (John 19:30 NKJV), Jesus said on the cross. Jesus endured the cross so that all of us—anyone who believes—might be saved and have eternal life.

And so, in the season of giving and receiving gifts, the greatest gift we could ever receive is Jesus—the Author and Finisher of our faith.

Glory to God and Merry Christmas!
