Discussion for John 6:38

  • MockingBird for verse 38
    I am forever grateful that Jesus came to do the will of our Father : It is not an easy thing to do : to change your will to do the will of God. Submission is always a thing you do not want to do. If it was : we all would be doing it all the time. It takes believing that what God says to do is the best , not only for you , but for others you are around every day of your life.
