Hebrews 12:2 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Hebrews 12:2

For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame. 


Last night, I was laying in bed thinking about Jesus on the way to the cross and how hard He had to fight to get there, only to experience more pain and eventually death. Think about that for a second. He fought that hard just to get to His own death! He did it because He knew that our lives were hanging in the balance. I imagine everything around Him screaming to give up or to make it stop or that we weren’t worth it, but to Him we are!!


To me, Jesus wasn’t just dragging the cross but me and my sins with it! I feel like now, more than ever, we need to have this same fight in us! The determination and perseverance that our Lord displayed needs to be living in each one of us!!


I believe the reason we’re struggling is we are fighting the enemy on his terms and on his turf!! We have to rely on God and fight with the spiritual weapons He has given us to overcome: prayer, fasting, praise, His Word, and love!! The only thing stronger than hate is love. Jesus proved that on the cross!! Jesus fought for each one of us; now, it’s time we fight for Him and each other!!!


I love you all, God bless, and Glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!!!!!!
