TODAY’S SOUL-LIFTING SCRIPTURE.
Monday, May 23, 2022.
New International Version:
“fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”(Hebrews 12:2)
Common English Bible:
“and fix our eyes on Jesus, faith’s pioneer and perfecter. He endured the cross, ignoring the shame, for the sake of the joy that was laid out in front of him, and sat down at the right side of God’s throne.”
“We must never stop looking to Jesus. He is the leader of our faith, and he is the one who makes our faith complete. He suffered death on a cross. But he accepted the shame of the cross as if it were nothing because of the joy he could see waiting for him. And now he is sitting at the right side of God’s throne.”
Beloved, steadfastly look unto Jesus, so that your thoughts will strengthen holy affections, and keep under your carnal desires!
