Newbigin: Jesus' joy

Monday, July 1, 2024
    Commemoration of John & Henry Venn, Priests, Evangelical Divines, 1813, 1873
    Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
    —Hebrews 12:2 (NIV)
    Surely the heart of the matter is not my safety and my joy. It is Jesus’ joy. It is that he should have the joy of knowing that all for whom he died have come home.
    ... Lesslie Newbigin (1909-1998), Journey Into Joy, Christian Literature Society, 1972, reprint, Wm. B. Errdmans, Grand Rapids, Michigan, 1973, p. 125 (see the book)
    See also Heb. 12:2; Ps. 16:9-11; Isa. 53:10-12; Luke 24:26; John 13:31-32; Phil. 2:8-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your work has triumphed.
