Jesus . . . who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame, and hath sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12.2.

The Lord Jesus looked at the joy that was set before Him and ran straight towards it. What is the joy? Did not He himself say, “Well done, good and faithful servant: . . . enter thou into the joy of thy lord” (Matt. 25.21)? This points to the joy in the millennium. True, our Lord obeyed God His Father according to His inherent nature. But in the Bible we find another fact, which is, that God’s reward and promise—especially that of the kingdom—definitely had some influence on Jesus’ life. Because of the joy that was set before Him, our Lord Jesus in His earthly race pressed onward bearing both shame and the cross.
