Passage: Hebrews 12:1-3

A final morning with our friend Chris Brown today, as he reminds us that as trials, and tough times, and the valleys of life show up, we can look to Jesus as the model of how to respond to that suffering. Hebrews 12:2 tells us what Jesus focused on during His suffering: “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.” Keep your eyes on the prize my friend!
