Christ did not allow His flesh to stop him from doing the will of God.
He was determined to press through the suffering even when the flesh tried to make Him give up. When the flesh spoke and said, “Father, if it be thou will, let this bitter cup pass from me.”
Thank God for the divine “Christ,” who stood up against the flesh and said, “Nevertheless, let your will be done…”
Thank God for his beloved Son and His obedience to the Father and His determination to complete his mission.
Just like Christ, when our flesh wants to give in and give up during trials and tribulations, we should stand on His word through the Holy Spirit, and say…“Nevertheless, Father let your will be done in my life”… Thank God!
“saying, “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done,” Luke 22:42.
