Reading: John 12: 20-50
Jesus' soul was troubled. The time was coming when he would face the fate that he knew was his from the start. Should he ask God to make it not happen? No, it's why he was on earth. And then the voice. "I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again." I bet Jesus felt better when he got that assurance from God.
What happens when your heart is troubled? How do you react? Do you cry out to God to take it away? Or, do you try to find God in your suffering?
As we proceed through this Holy Week, look for God in the suffering. God is there. God will give assurance. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
