Do you ever wonder what ultimately pulled Jesus through that terrible choice to suffer a long, painful, humiliating death? Jesus was God – he could have chosen anything…
It was a vision.
A vision of us being there in the future with him. It couldn’t get better than that for Jesus. He chose the cross because we needed rescuing. What does that say to you about the kind of person Jesus is?

‘[Let us] fix our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy that was set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God’ Hebrews 12v2 ( http://bit.ly/K3W6RX )
