Verses:

 

Heb. 12:2a “Looking away unto Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith.”

 

Excerpts:

 

Please read 2 Samuel 9:13. “Mephibosheth dwelt in Jerusalem because he ate at the king’s table continually. And he was crippled in both his feet.” We were saved by grace initially, and we are also kept in this salvation by grace. Many mistakenly have a concept that they were initially saved by grace but they are kept in this salvation by work. However, there is no such thing. We should realize that the condition for salvation is the condition for preservation. We are saved by Jesus, and we are kept by Jesus to the end.

 

Although Mephibosheth dined with the king often, his two feet still remained lame. If one foot is lame, one can still jump. What God has spread out here is wonderful, rich, and sweet. We just need to eat. We should not look at ourselves. Instead, we should look at the riches God has given us. If we keep our eyes upon the Lord, we will go from glory to glory and be transformed into His image. If we look at ourselves, we will be just like Mephibosheth with two feet lame. After we are saved, we receive a new life, and the Holy Spirit lives within us; we become entirely new. The self that comes from Adam never changes. As long as we are still in this body, our two feet are still lame. We should not look at ourselves. We should only look at the riches and the grace that God has spread before us. When we do this, our hearts will be satisfied. (CWWN, vol. 18, pp. 287-288)
