One of the things I love reading is how Jesus was both man and God. Jesus knew His role and purpose, yet He did not look forward to His human suffering. You can hear these two forces as He prayed to God in Mark 14:36, “Abba, Father,” he said, “everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” God never promised our lives would be easy, but He did promise our lives would be fulfilling if we follow Him. We must all remember this life is simply a moment in the light of eternity. Living it to the fullest will not always be easy, but we have the opportunity to impact the world greatly if we listen and are willing to be used by Him.
