Spiritual Warfare: 'Jesus Endured Much, so You Can, Too'

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, June 23, 2022

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. Think about Jesus. He patiently endured the angry insults that sinful people were shouting at him. Think about him so that you won’t get discouraged and stop trying.
— Hebrews 12:2-3 ERV

Today's Prayer

Lord Jesus, thank you for suffering on the cross for my sake. Thank You for enduring the shame, the insults, and the great pain on my behalf. When my own life becomes difficult, remind me that You suffered so much more for me. Let that reminder give me the strength to keep on going. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
