“Let us look only to Jesus, the One who began our faith and who makes it perfect. He suffered death on the cross. But he accepted the shame as if it were nothing because of the joy that God put before him. And now he is sitting at the right side of God’s throne.”Hebrews 12:2 NCV
The joy set before him. Do you know you are the joy? I am the joy. We are the joy!
I don’t think I ever realized that until the other day. I was listening to Tim Keller’s podcast on the way to work. He was teaching from this passage of scripture.
Oh how I love my Jesus.
Everything I do now is out of my love for Jesus. He is the joy set before me. I am his and he is mine.
Do you know this kind of joy? I sure hope you do.
