Perfecter…a person who completes or makes something perfect.

Today’s reflection offers us an opportunity to think about a passage from Hebrews 12:1-3

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who for the sake of the joy that was set before him endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God.  Consider him who endured such hostility against himself from sinners, so that you may not grow weary or lose heart.

Devotion:  Our lives as Christians often involves hard work like giving up the stuff that gets in the way of our relationship with God.  We are to run the race of life with endurance knowing that the sin of our lives will cause us to struggle.  We need to keep our eyes on Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to work in our favor each and every day.
