“Will of the Father”
John 6: 38, 39: “For I have come down from Heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him Who sent Me. And this is the will of Him Who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day.” Our pattern in all we have been talking about this week is, of course, Jesus Christ. His own will: to have a normal life, to settle in as an influential rabbi in Jerusalem, or to call twelve legions of angels to deliver Him from His passion, didn’t matter. To raise us up, even at such a cost to Himself, was His only passion, His only desire. The will of the Father over the things of this life!
