Eyes on the Prize
Joy – even anticipated joy – motivates. It even motivated Jesus Christ. “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, we must get rid of every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and run with endurance the race set out for us, keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith. For the joy set out for him he endured the cross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12;1, 2) Keep your eyes on the prize. May the joy of Christ pull you through.
