The worst part of suffering is knowing it’s coming. The fear of the needle is worse than the prick.

Jesus knew it was His last week on earth. He knew He would be the Passover Lamb that year. He knew He would suffer and die. He was not looking forward to it. He warned His disciples what would happen.
John 12:27, 28, “Right now I am storm-tossed. And what am I going to say? ‘Father, get me out of this?’ No, this is why I came in the first place. I’ll say, ‘Father, put your glory on display.’ ” The Message
