For the restoration of mankind to God.
For an intimate relationship with you.
That is why Jesus went to the cross.
“Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever.”
Hebrews 12:2 MSG
He began and finished this race – this faith journey of trusting God while dealing with the reality of a broken life in a broken world.
Jesus entered this brokenness, was broken in it and then rose again to offer hope and wholeness to the world. He didn’t lose sight of God’s future, He focused on it. He focused on you.
Jesus knew that going to the cross would restore mankind to a right relationship with God. He is your Advocate, He sees your future and has the authority to give you what you need to get to it.
When you are overwhelmed and the difficulty before it begins to weigh you down – fix your eyes on Jesus.
He went through the unimaginable so that He could get you through the impossible. You were His reason so He could be yours.
