27 “Now my soul is troubled, and what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? No, it was for this very reason I came to this hour. 28 Father, glorify your name!”
Then a voice came from heaven, “I have glorified it, and will glorify it again.” 29 The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him.
30 Jesus said, “This voice was for your benefit, not mine. 31 Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out. 32 And I, when I am lifted up[a] from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” 33 He said this to show the kind of death he was going to die.
34 The crowd spoke up, “We have heard from the Law that the Messiah will remain forever, so how can you say, ‘The Son of Man must be lifted up’? Who is this ‘Son of Man’?”
35 Then Jesus told them, “You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. Whoever walks in the dark does not know where they are going. 36 Believe in the light while you have the light, so that you may become children of light.” When he had finished speaking, Jesus left and hid himself from them.

Observation: Jesus, in the words You spoke to the Father and to the people around You, I see You setting a clear example for me follow. You came to this world to do all of the Father’s will for You, not just the easy things, but 100% of His will. There are so many times that I don’t want to face the challenges that come with being a child of God and the unique purpose which the Father has given me.
Action: Jesus, I choose this day to walk in Your light and to complete the tasks that the Father has put before me. Today, this task is coordinating, cooking, setting up and hosting a Passover Seder for about 100 guests. I commit to completing this Passover Seder and all of the components that go into it without complaining or grumbling, and so that Your Name will be glorified and the guests and my co-laborers may be blessed.
