“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.”

Hebrews 12:2a
“Time keeps on ticking into the future.” These lyrics from a famous classic rock song state the obvious—at least until Christ’s return. Even as we wrap up our brief look at the first 400 years of Church history, the story continues … it keeps on ticking into the future. 

Is your curiosity stirred? “Take up and read.” See how God preserved His Word in medieval days when brutes were sacking and destroying Christian churches. Read how people like Peter Waldo and John Huss challenged the church to return to the Scriptures alone. Discover the stories of men and women who helped reform the church, who gave their lives for the gospel, and who took the good news of salvation to the furthest islands and mountain tops. 

My prayer is that this month you’ve been reminded that there has never been a time when Jesus was not shepherding His church. Through the highs and lows, He has been guiding and protecting His people. Since He is the “author and finisher” of our story, we can trust in Him today, no matter what we face tomorrow.
