For the Joy Set Before You 4.17.17

“fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart” Hebrews 12:2-3

Yesterday we celebrated the defeat of death by the risen King. Jesus, “the pioneer and perfecter of faith”, became sin for us so that we can have life eternal with him. He endured the cross for the joy set before him – the joy of eternity with the Father. I pray that no matter what season of life you are in or what hardships you are living through, you are encouraged by fixing your eyes on Jesus and the joy set before you.

The promise of future joy penetrates back into the present and sustains us with joy now in the midst of sorrow. At the Lord’s Table, we meet with Christ, link arms as his family, and walk forward together toward eternal glory in the strength he supplies.
