Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us, keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that lay before Him endured a cross and despised the shame and has sat down at the right hand of God's throne. Hebrews 12:2
Make your own attitude that of Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God as something to be used for His own advantage. Instead He emptied Himself by assuming the form of a slave, taking on the likeness of men. And when He had come as a man in His external from, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death- even to death on a cross. Philippians 2:5-8
What a Savior I have.
You suffered. You endured. You emptied. You died.
The world's rebellion against your Father, your greatest love, was heaped upon you and you willingly took it because YOU LOVE ME!
I do not deserve. I have not earned.
But the cross, the tool of death, it was the instrument to life.
This welling inside me,
You knew and endured,
For the Joy!!
