We all struggle with this decision every day. What do we want to do versus what do we need to do? When we are lucky the want to do decision can win and we can allow ourselves the time to play, sleep, relax, visit friends or whatever it is we want. At other times though, the need to do scenario must take precedence and we need to just get done what we have to.
Jesus faced that very struggle at Gethsemane. He knew the path ahead and this was the final pit stop, His final opportunity to back out of the plan and run away or stand firm and face the moment of His betrayal. He could have run......He could have said, "sorry Father, I'm just not ready."
Jesus surrendered His will to God, faced His betrayer and followed the path that lead to Calvary. Oh and thank God He did! Our lives would never have been the same if He didn't.
So next time you are faced with a want to vs need to decision, make the choice that is right for you, but remember Jesus and the price He paid for you!
