Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him, endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12: 2 NIV

Jesus knew the pain of His fate, yet He focused on JOY to come. We need to be reminded why He suffered for our sin. God wants us to reflect on Jesus' death and resurrection. He longs for us to examine our lives, surrender to Him and recognize why we NEED the Savior. 

Luke 15:10 says there is JOY in heaven when we surrender sin. By nature, we are rebellious toward God. But, His love and grace allow us to be forgiven. We love Him, because He first loved us. When we allow ourselves to be led by faith, God bandages our wounds. He heals the brokenhearted and allows us to see ourselves as He sees us; worthy of love, even though we are not deserving. 

God rejoices when we receive Jesus with humbled hearts of praise. When we take time to reflect on what has been done for us, we realize Jesus deserves ALL of our love. We mustn’t turn from the One who took our pain. He is worthy of so much MORE... 

God will open our eyes. He will show us amazing things to discover. His mercy is great and His love is eternal. He is mighty, awesome and good! We must honor the One who created us to experience the JOY of Jesus! He will show us how to remain faithful. And, He will help us remember; His LOVE really does bear all things...

Dear God, Thank you for moments to remember what Jesus did for us. We are grateful to have a Savior who loves! Humble our hearts for Jesus and give us courage to open our eyes in truth. Help us surrender what’s holding us back from welcoming Your abundant JOY. We will honor You with our love and welcome the power of Your amazing grace. And, we will fix our eyes on Jesus. We will focus on what will ALWAYS make us stronger, if we remain faithful and totally TRUST. Amen
