looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2 ESV
Is there something in your life that brings you joy although it may seem strange to other people? Perhaps the hard work of studying, tightening finances at home or doing work around the house. All of these things have one common factor, a great reward in return for the sacrifice given. Jesus considered it a joyful experience to go the cross for you. Why? Because He looked at what He would gain in return. He looked forward to a restored relationship between Himself and you. Jesus gave His very life down to know you better. Won't you give up your for Him?
