Hebrews 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-3
With every step He took toward the cross You were on His mind. He loves you not for what you do but who you are. No matter if you ever get any better He loves you just the same. The cross is the evidence of that. You are the joy set before Him.
