Newton: Thy will

Sunday, February 12, 2017
    And [Jesus] said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.”
    —Mark 14:36 (ESV)
    “What Thou wilt, when Thou wilt, how Thou wilt.” I had rather speak these three sentences from my heart, in my mother tongue, than be master of all the languages in Europe.
    ... John Newton (1725-1807), in a letter, 1779, The Works of the Rev. John Newton, v. II, New York: Williams and Whiting, 1810, p. 251 (see the book)
    See also Mark 14:36; 3:35; John 7:17; Rom. 8:27; 12:2; Gal. 4:4-5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, place Your will before mine in my heart.
