Jesus did not live by His will. He may have expressed to the Father His desires, but Jesus always submitted those under the will of the Father, as shown in His prayer shortly before His massive suffering attacked Him,
And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done” (Luke 22.41–42).
To Him, His life was not about Him, but only about the Father, even if it meant suffering on a scale that goes beyond our ability to calculate.
- Have you surrendered your entire life to the will of God?
- If not, what part are you holding back?
- Why are you holding it back?
