THY WILL BE DONE
READ: Mark 14:32-42
“…Yet I want your will, not mine.” Mark 10:36 (NIV)
The Gethsemane story is a vivid real life demonstration of the prayer Jesus taught His disciples, “Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10). How often do we mouth these words without contemplating what His will really is? Further, where is His will to be carried out? The answer is obvious in the real world and in our everyday life.
How different would our lives and the world be if we conscientiously carried out the pledge, “Thy will be done”? How differently would we treat our fellow man as we ambled through each day? What do we really mean when we say these words? Are we pledging to do His will or is this an empty nice sounding phrase?
