We often put a selfish interpretation on the Scripture that says of Jesus, “For the joy that was set before him, he endured the cross, despising the shame….” We think it was the pleasure of having us in His presence, and certainly, that played a large part. However it is apparent from the Word of God that the real joy set before Him was knowing that He had fulfilled His Father’s will – that He had been true to His commitment, to His purpose at coming into this world, and that He had pleased His Father. –TBC

“I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.” –John:17:4
