“Thy will be done”

Key Verse

“… O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.” Matthew 26:42b

Text — Matthew 26:40-46


The will of God is the best thing anyone can do. It is the only way to please God and fulfil His eternal purposes. There is no mistake or regret in doing God’s will. There are joy and peace in the heart of anyone who is doing the will of God. Though one may suffer shame, pain and even death, yet doing the will of God brings both present and heavenly rewards.

Like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego the fire of Nebuchadnezzar cannot frighten those who are doing the will of God. Like Daniel, the lions’ den does not scare someone who wants to please God. For our Lord Jesus Christ neither the pains of the cross nor the fears of the grave could cause Him to reject the will of God. You must first know the will of God concerning your life and then make up your mind to do it. The will of God is that you should be saved from sin, honour Jesus wherever you go, preach to those around you and prepare to meet your Lord when He comes. Do God’s will and He will bless you.
