God’s Will Over My Will

As Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane, He fully grasped the weight of His impending sacrifice.  Aware of the severity of God’s wrath, He emulated the need for prioritizing God’s will over my will.  Mark 14:26-42 26 And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. 27 And Jesus said to them, “You will all fall away, for it is written, ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.’ 28 But after I…
