“Troubled for His Glory” John 12:27-28

In our verses this morning we read that Jesus was troubled by the will of God, but He also found His purpose in being troubled. Often, we want to avoid any feelings of trouble or maybe we expect God to keep us from trouble, but Jesus teaches us that being in God’s will requires us to let go of our desires so that God can be glorified. And when Christ is glorified, men are redeemed. Are we willing to be troubled by the will of God, for the glory of God? Jesus felt troubled. He came to bear it with us, not take it from us. This morning I pray that we would see without trouble we rarely change, and that we would be able to find the purpose in trouble rather than looking for a way out.
