THE JOY BEFORE HIM
by: Michele-Lyn Ault
Imagine, it was you He had on His mind when He carried His cross. Yes, you – even with all of your shortcomings, mistakes, weaknesses. He loved you first, before you even knew He knew your name; before you could do a single thing to deserve His love – He chose you. He found you to be worth the pain, worth dying for. Imagine, you were the joy He carried, so He could carry on. May He always be ours.
“For the joy set before Him, He endured the cross…” – Hebrews 12:2
