Jesus prayed, Father, the hour has come.
This was the moment for which the Lamb slain before the foundation of the world’ had been waiting throughout eternity. Now on earth, in human form, his wait was almost over. Although only in his early 30s, his hour had come. What an enormous amount he had accomplished in so few years! As John wrote, there are also many other things that Jesus did. Were every one of them to be written, I suppose that the world itself could not contain the books that would be written (21: 25).
What an example to us. Let us strive to fill each rapidly passing minute, with sixty seconds worth of distance running!
