John 12:27 ” Now My heart 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.”

Jesus is greatly troubled…His soul overwhelmed with sorrow by the prospect of bearing the wrath of His Holy Father in our place. Nevertheless, He accepts His role and the purpose of Him coming to earth in the first place…reasserting His commitment to the Father’s perfect Will. Jesus knew the time had come…a time of trial, sorrow, and suffering on His part…but He also knew that if He desired, God could rescue Him. We see this in the Garden of Gethsemane when Jesus declared again, “Don’t you think I cannot call on My Father, and He will at once put at My disposal more than twelve legions of angels? But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?” (Matthew 26: 53-54)
