Not every season in life is enjoyable and filling. Whether you've just emerged from a drought or are walking through one now, we have solace in knowing that Christ endured the same when he died for our sins. Sometimes you can't harvest joy from a situation. Although Jesus came to die for our sins, it doesn't mean he enjoyed being tortured and killed (for sin he wasn't guilty of) but he endured the cross and the shame for the joy God had set before him BEYOND the cross, THROUGH the sacrifice he made. Joy will come again.
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
