"My Joy"

"My Joy"

"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus,
the author and perfecter of our faith,
who for the sake of the joy set before Him
endured the cross, disregarding its shame,
and has taken His seat at the right hand of the throne of God."

- Hebrews 12:2

"All for you, Child, I surrendered;
on the Cross I took your shame.
On My nail-scarred hands forever,
lovingly I wrote your name.

"All for you, Child, I surrendered;
all for you I freely gave.
I will ever love and hold you;
in you I will always live."

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,
let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles,
and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us...
Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men,
so that you will not grow weary and lose heart...

"Have you forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons?
'My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,
and do not lose heart when He rebukes you,
because the Lord disciplines those He loves,
and He chastens everyone He accepts as His child.'"

- Hebrews 12:1,3,5-6
