However hard our struggles may be, it is important for us to realise that God's love is woven into our suffering. In the previous verses, it was the love of the Father for us that sent Jesus to the cross. That same love motivated Jesus to see His mission through as He anticipated the joy in heaven and the joy of sinners being saved and included in the kingdom of heaven. The writer has already said, "Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." (Hebrews 12:3). All his readers, and us today are still alive.
