Not What I Will
True character comes out in crisis, when all you can do is respond. The Lord Jesus was so thoroughly immersed in the character of God the Father that he stood fast in the greatest crisis of his life just before His death. He was given a chance to cut and run, to avoid the cross, but Jesus stood firm, his divine character immovable. “Going a little farther, he threw himself down with his face to the ground and prayed, ‘My Father, if possible, let this cup pass from me! Yet not what I will, but what you will.’” (Matt. 26:39) Want to be ready when hard times hit? Obey Christ today.
