Person Of Integrity-Jesus

March 27th, 2018 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – All this week, the person of Integrity from the Bible that we are examining is Jesus.

Hebrews 12:2 urges us to fix our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our 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. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Here we see that Jesus willingly went to the cross. He did not do this reluctantly or begrudgingly. His love for us kept Him moving forward to reach the goal. Jesus kept the joy of His future glory in mind as He was going to the cross.

Keeping God’s eternal promises and His unfailing love in view will strengthen us to press on in the faith through the trials of life.

The faithfulness of Jesus to endure the cross inspires us to endure hardship for Him and to live a life of integrity.
