Nama Article 25th December 2011
Jesus says, “Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? But for this purpose I have come to this hour. Father, glorify your name.”
He lives for the purpose of glorifying his heavenly Father, and every act he takes, whatever the cost, must be the one that most glorifies his heavenly Father. So his prayer must be, “Father, glorify your name.”
It is important that we see this struggle so that we can know that Jesus faced every kind of temptation that we face, and that he made choices to obey that were hard and painful for him.
Jesus had prayed, “Father glorify your name”: Then a voice came from heaven: “I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again.” The crowd that stood there and heard it said that it had thundered. Others said, “An angel has spoken to him.”
