    HEB 12:2 -- "...........WHO FOR THE JOY SET BEFORE HIM ENDURED THE CROSS............." The 'joy' .....; can you imagine!? Nor was it His personal joy He was thinking of, but His joy in OUR salvation when we followed Him in Acts 2:38. He went thru this for us, not for Himself.

    There is only one straight narrow path that God will accept To enter the kingdom of God. Faith, obedience to the word, in sincerity in truth. JOHN 14

    well what I think about Hebrews 12 is that this scripture is the one that can be more effective when you TEACH the church of God about how you react as a new born or the son of the living God JESUS CHRIST so that all those who willing to join the havens family will come I Big Numbers.

    Faithful Christians welcome the Lords chastisement because they understand that it is for their own spiritual good.Christians must have the desire to be corrected when they a walking froward to God's word.God is a loving,caring,forgiving, and just God.Faithful Christians need to always be in remembrance of that.
  • Jonathan McDade
    The Kingdom we receive is inside us when God grants us piece, and if he has delivered us from evil through prayer in secret then we must remember to honour our loving God the Father so that we are never in the hands of the enemy, it would be foolish not to fear God who can do such amazing things for us. What an amazing big God he is.
