And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. – Matthew 26:39 (KJV).
On a smaller scale, have you ever wished that God hadn’t asked you to do something? Did you ever anguish over it? Maybe to the point of being sick to your stomach with worry? The key is to do what Jesus did and commit yourself to the Will of God no matter what and to do it, fear and all.
Imagine if Jesus didn’t go to the Cross. We would all be going to hell. Aren’t you glad He submitted to God’s Will for His life and went to the cross to take the judgment and punishment for our sins? And that He rose from the dead? I know I am.
