It struck me that Jesus trusted the Father enough to die. When he said, “Father take this cup from me,” What was he expressing? Fear? We’re not completely sure. Theologians argue about it. We know Jesus was sinless. He chose the Father’s will even though it appeared crazy to those closest to him. He knew the Father. He knew the Father to be good. Father loved him and the world and wouldn’t put him through this in vain. Father knows best. Do we know our Father well enough to believe he knows best? To believe that he will do good to us?
*Thank you Jesus for giving us life through your death.
