Not My Will

Sue’s Views
The Cross was a brutal and excruciating way to die. Jesus knew exactly what He was about to face. He spent an evening in anguish ….. wrestling with the prospect ….. and yet knowing what He had to do. So He yielded His will to His Father’s will. The thing that enabled Him to move forward was seeing you and me being set free from sin and reconciled to God. That gave Him joy! It was the most loving and selfless gift anyone has ever given. There are times when we may have to make decisions we don’t want to make. Things that will cost us ….. and cause us pain emotionally or physically. In times like that ….. remember the words of Jesus in Gethsemane:
 “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine be done.” Luke 22:42
