And yet He came - John 12:27-28

Now My soul is troubled, and what shall I say? 'Father, save Me from this hour'? But for this purpose I came to this hour. Father, glorify Your name.  
John 12:27-28

Some things to ponder as we read Jesus' words:

* Anyone who questions the humanity of Christ needs only to read the text above... shall I say? 'Father, save Me from this hour'?

* This is a rare glimpse into the thoughts of Christ as He prayed to the Father. Notice how "real" He is.

* Jesus, facing the agony of the cross, is more concerned about the Father's glory than His own comfort.

* He knew that pain and suffering were necessary to accomplish His mission... and yet He came.

Think on these things.
