The Symbolism and Meaning Behind the Design
“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” (Luke 22:42)
Jesus prayed these words knowing what was about to happen on Calvary. It had to be difficult to not just ask God to stop the crucifixion, but instead told his Father “Not my will, but yours”. Often, we want God to stop whatever may be happening in our lives, our loved ones’ lives, or the world. As difficult as it is, let us always remember that we need to trust and follow God’s will – not ours.
