Today’s attached devotional is a wonderful example of what Jesus can
mean to us. May it draw you ever nearer to Him! God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Hebrews 12:2 (ESV)
2 looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
“I have heard Him and observed Him,
Seen His beauty rich and rare;
Seen His majesty and glory,
And His bliss beyond compare.
Since my eyes are fixed on Jesus,
I’ve lost sight of all beside;
So enchained my spirit’s vision,
Looking at the Crucified.”
