Ponder: “VICTORY AT THE CROSS”
Jesus death on the cross, as hard as it might be in the flesh, was going to be a great victory for God and man. Hebrews 12:1-2 says, "… for the joy that was set before Him [He] endured the cross]." In other words, He looked ahead at the victory that would be accomplished. He wasn't focused on the cross itself, or the pain of the moment. Instead, His focus was on the resurrection! He was about to accomplish the greatest victory that has ever been or ever will be! The cross wasn't going to be easy, and God didn't want His Son to lose heart, so He sent messengers to remind Him that His coming decease would be a great victory. Our countenance changes when our focus and meditation is on the right thing (our victory in Christ). So be encouraged today!
