Commemoration of Sergius of Radonezh, Russian Monastic Reformer, Teacher, 1392 Meditation
Therefore, we also having so great a cloud of witnesses set around us, every weight having put off, and the closely besetting sin, through endurance may we run the contest that is set before us, looking to the author and perfecter of faith—Jesus, who, over-against the joy set before him—did endure a cross, shame having despised, on the right hand also of the throne of God did sit down...
—Hebrews 12:1-2 (YLT) Quotation
What is more kindly to behold “the Author” of faith, than faith? or more kindly for faith to behold, than her “Author” here at first, and her “Finisher” there at last? Him to behold first and last, and never to be satisfied with looking on Him, Who was content to buy us and our eye at so dear a rate.
... Lancelot Andrewes
