"My Soul Is Troubled."

“Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour.  Father, glorify your name!”Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.”

Jesus is approaching the ultimate sacrifice.
Pain, humiliation, dereliction are before him.
He is troubled in a way none of us will fathom.
Still his focus is on his Father,
His desire is that the completed mission 
Will bring glory to Him.

We might approach the worst of times
Troubled beyond words.
Jesus shows we can yet be witnesses

To the love and goodness of the Father.
