“Abba, Father,” he said, “everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.”
Did Jesus not want to do what God wanted Him to do because he was afraid?
Jesus knew that he would be crucified for the sins of the world. He was very sad, sad, and afraid that he would be abandoned by God the Father. Jesus prayed to the Father that He hoped that this suffering would not happen, but if this was God’s plan, Jesus was still willing to do it according to God’s will. When Jesus was in great pain and weakness, he did not escape from difficulties, but still chose to face them and do what He should do.

Dear Lord Jesus Christ, thank you for letting me see that you are so willing to do God’s will and not run away from problems. I also want to tell God what I think I can’t do, and the pressure in my heart, and rely on God who can do everything. In the holy name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen!
