Hebrews 12:1-2

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 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 has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

The reason He had a vision of the joy that was set before Him was that He knew the Scriptures.
 
For example, He knew that Psalms 16:9-11 speaks of the joy of the resurrection (and Acts 2:25 tells us that these verses pertain specifically to Jesus).
 
We know from this passage that long before He ever actually experienced the joy of eternal life, He saw it.
 
It may have been way off in the distance.
 
It may have had a painful cross standing in front of it, but he saw it nonetheless.
 
He saw the joy that awaited Him—that had been set before Him.
 
And this was the vision that empowered Him to endure the cross.
 
How many of us have such a vision?
 
What are we focused on?
 
 
What are we looking forward to?
 
A family?
 
A career?
 
That’s all nice.
 
But if that is your fundamental reason for living, you have missed the whole point…..
 
Let’s discuss on the Gratitude:UnFiltered!
 
With love,
 
Joshua T Berglan
