"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God." Hebrews 12:2
IN JESUS TODAY!
No matter where you are at in the world and no matter what's going on in your life we can always have hope for a better day when we look to Jesus! Some have said why did he do it? Why did Jesus go through such harsh treatment and death on the cross. When I think about what's going on in the world today and the suffering that exists, to have the example of Jesus reminds us that joy cometh in the morning! After all is said and done and after all the dust settles from the air we can see clearly that we have the victory, because victory is already won. Jesus has won the victory for us! Things might seem hopeless right now and for sure they are difficult, but never are they as difficult as what our savior endured to make the path straight for us to be with him in heaven. He endured the crucifixion while despising the shame of it all so that we can look to him and have hope to endure our sufferings too. "And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross." Philippians 2:8
"For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds." Hebrews 12:3 Jesus loves you!
LET JESUS BE THE EXAMPLE THAT YOU FOLLOW!
