It Was Time

To read the Bible in a year, read John 17.
Jesus had done everything that needed to be done and spoken everything that needed to be spoken. The time was up. It was now on to His final act of His ministry. Therefore, He looked up to heaven and began to pray in this manner, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You, as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him” (John 17:1, 2). Jesus knew the time. Moreover, He knew that this meant to glorify God through death and by that death, Jesus would give eternal life to all whom the Father had given to Jesus.
Think on what Jesus admitted. Think on the fact that He knew the timing of His death and its meaning. Nevertheless, keep in mind that He approached His death boldly.
