The Fires of Sorrow

Jesus foretold His death when He said, "Now My soul has become troubled; and what shall I say, 'Father, save Me from this hour'?  But for this purpose I came to this hour.  Father, glorify Thy name" (John 12:27-28).  Jesus was not saved from the hour of His death, but was brought through that hour.  Christians are not prevented from experiencing sorrow in life, but they are delivered through the fires of sorrow that they might, thereby, glorify God.  Whether in joy or in sorrow, may God be praised.
