This Sunday we're going to carry on with the passage in the Gospel of John in which Jesus begins poignantly revealing the nature of his death to his disciples, and wrestling with it at the same time.
In these two verses we get the closest thing in Scripture to recorded dialog within the Trinity, as the Father responds to the Son's affirmation of his filial devotion.
One of the hardest things in the Christian life is saying with our Savior "Yet not my will but yours." Those moments where I must chose between my way and His glory pose the greatest threat to my devotion, but they also express the most dynamic potential for spiritual growth.
