“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, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.

For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Hebrews 12:1-2

When someone holds on to joy in spite of everything, I call that “defiant joy.” A person with defiant joy refuses to be squelched by negative voices or intimidated by overwhelming odds.

In Jesus, we have the greatest example anyone could imagine. Today’s Scripture says, “For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

The joy born out of suffering is unflinching in the face of discouragement; it is unshakable when your pain screams at you to choose doubt and fear.

Joy is a gift of the Holy Spirit that is far more durable, rigorous, and rugged than most of us realize.

So, when you pick up your cross every day, do so without wavering. Because as you do, you’ll also be choosing joy.

Jesus, I am humbled—and in awe—to think you would willingly endure betrayal, the terrors of the cross, and the dark stain of all my sin.

And somehow, you saw joy beyond it all. You knew your suffering would purchase my rescue from death and open the doors of eternal life for me.

Teach me, Lord, to look beyond today’s pain to see heaven on the horizon.
