Hebrews 12:3 ESV
Consider him who endured from sinners such hostility against himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted.
Jesus endured hostility by the grace of God to the point of accepting crucifiction. In doing so, he championed the cause of endurance. He is our hero of endurance. We look to him today to help us—with the same grace by which he conquered—to endure the unbelievable hostility we Christians increasingly face. Jesus bolsters our courage with his incredible joy and his peace that surpasses all understanding.
