"Hebrews tells us that Jesus endured the cross for the "joy that was set before him".
What was the joy?
What one thing did He gain through the cross that He didn't have before?
"He was forsaken so we would never be."
"You've got to preach the gospel to yourself. When you feel abandoned, know that you are NOT."
"We do not honor God with small requests...we honor Him when we come before Him with great expectations."
"Do the size of our prayers mirror the size of His sacrifice?"
such a powerful word from the Word - take a listen
