There are a lot of reasons for you and I to be in church this morning. A key reason has got to be that you want to know God better. Who is He? What is He doing? Why has He made me? What does He want me to do? What is He like? Here is a question I thought about this week… Does God have a smell?
Why am I talking about this? Because we are going to walk through an intimate conversation Jesus had with His Father the day before His death.
We are going to listen in as God the Son reveal’s what’s going on in His heart and mind. Jesus will die the very next day. He knows this and He knows it will not be easy - but He also knew that it was an essential and deliberate part of God’s plan.
My prayer in studying this passage is that you and I would catch a glimpse into the heart and mind of Jesus and that it would cause us to fall deeply in love with Him. Just as importantly, I also pray that the desires of Jesus heart would set the agenda of our lives.
