him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary
What’s your goal in life?
To glorify God and enjoy him forever. I think that looks like living life as a faithful son,
