“I Seek Not…”

“…because I seek not my will but the will of him who sent me” – John 5:30

“No doubt, Jesus, Himself also, has a natural will distinct from that of God; His prayer in Gethsemane clearly proves it: ‘Not my will, but thine be done.’ But, in a being entirely consecrated to God, as Jesus was, this natural will (my will), exists only to be unceasingly submitted or sacrificed to the Father’s will…for all self-will in Jesus was a will continually and freely sacrificed.”

–Frederic Louis Godet

 

Lord, teach us to unceasingly submit and sacrifice our wills to the Father’s will.
