    Apr 16, 2017
    Hebrews 12 :1-3 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.  Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. THE JOY OF A JOB WELL DONE Jesus’ last words were, “It is finished.” (John 19:30) Jesus found joy in finishing the task that God put him on earth to complete. What on earth are you here for? Will you be able to say, “It is finished,” or will you leave it undone? In the parable of the talents and three servants, Jesus said in Matthew 25:21, “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!” THE JOY OF OFFERING FORGIVENESS Jesus was glad that he had fully paid the price for your forgiveness. The Bible says that in the Old Testament, in all of history before Jesus, that God covered people’s sins. With Jesus taking the punishment for your sins, even before you were born, your sins are not covered by your faith, they are removed and eliminated by faith! THE JOY OF THE RESURRECTION Can you imagine how fun it would be if all your friends thought you were dead, and then you show up at the funeral? Then you show up to hear your will read. Then you show up at work where your obituary has been posted for the last weekend. Jesus was excited about being the first raised from the dead, to never die again. A few others rose form the dead: Lazarus, the widow’s son from Nain, Jairus’ daughter, the man Elisha’s bones touched, Euticus who fell from a window, Elisha raised the Shunamite woman’s son, Elijah raised the widow’s son. Though others rose from the dead, they all died again. Jesus rose to never die again! Hebrews 7:23-24 says, “Now there have been many of those priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office; but because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood.” Some day all followers of Jesus will rise just as he did and will live forever. Romans 6:5-7 says, “If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.  For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—because anyone who has died has been freed from sin. THE JOY OF YOU The joy is knowing and being with you.
