I loved studying Hebrews 11 in Come Follow Me this week.
One of my favorite quotes was what it says in Hebrews 5:9, "And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;"
I was initially confused by this verse. Other parts of the scriptures talk about Christ being the author of our faith... but how can someone else be the author of your story?
That's only possible if the author is a biographer. If Christ is the author of our faith and our salvation, he's the one writing our story... but we're the ones living our story. The biographer can only write what his subjects give him.
We have to provide Christ with our obedience, our willingness, and our belief in him inspiring us to action, and then He's the one that makes our faith count by writing it down.
