If it be possible

3vHuf8KLdjh1UL9qIes_NlYGBPSRFo82DUnmfulAk-sy9k0iBJcfiA==, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.
Matthew 26:39
The chosen 11 were with Him, but Jesus already felt heaviness and sorrow, even unto death, and wanted the three closest to Him to go further and “sit…and watch with me.” But even they could not appreciate His severe suffering…His profound sense of the evil of sin resting upon Him. His God-nature wanted to obey the will of His Father. Conflict with the man-nature made Him ask, “If it be possible, let this cup pass from me.” The extreme passion of the moment was lost on the disciples. They slept as He agonized. Jesus was alone with grief so intense it was beyond human knowledge.

After repeated prayer, Christ stepped forward. Knowing the Father’s answer, and with resolute fortitude and tranquility, He accepted the darkness and trials to come – so He could be your Light forever. Pray now for those in darkness, including your leaders in this nation, that they may know and love the true Light of the world.
