Let’s stop trying to think our way out of a need for faith. I can make schedules, and shift people around, and make phone calls all day, but it’s got to start with a faith and trust that God will provide, even if my logic doesn’t play out.
This is the moment Jesus could have said no. He could have asked God to let it happen another way, choose another man, pick another method. But more than wanting to be free from the “cup of suffering” he was about to endure, he wanted God’s will to be done.
