Bible Verse Of The Day

— Hebrews 12:2-3 —
…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. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Upon that cross of Jesus mine eyes at times can see
The very dying form of One Who suffered there for me;
And from my smitten heart with tears, two wonders I confess,
The wonders of His glorious love and my own worthlessness.
I take, O cross, thy shadow for my abiding place;
I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of His face;
Content to let the world go by, to know no gain nor loss,
My sinful self my only shame, my glory all the cross!
— Elizabeth Clephane
