Because of Calvary,
Hebrews 11:24-26 (ESV)
24 By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, 25 choosing rather to be mistreated with the people of God than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. 26 He considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking to the reward.
“How was it that Moses forsook the pleasures of Pharaoh’s house, and refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter? How was it that he cast in his lot with a despised people like the Hebrews, and risked everything in this world in carrying out the great work of their deliverance from bondage? To the eye of sense he was losing everything and gaining nothing. What was it that moved him? It was faith. He believed that there was One far above Pharaoh, who would carry him safe through all his undertaking. He believed that the ‘recompense of reward’ was far better than all the honors of Egypt.” [J. C. Ryle, Holiness: Its Nature, Hindrances, Difficulties, and Roots, (London: James Clarke & Co. Ltd., n.d.) p. 80]
