Jesus’ public teaching ministry was complete other than the few words He would speak from the Cross.  The leaders were plotting His demise and the disciples were following with uncertainty.  There was electricity in the air with all that was going on but Jesus was resolute and clear in His purpose.  Do you remain resolute in the face of difficult circumstances?

Lord, I will stay focused and committed to Your plans and purposes.

Jesus would not be deterred from His mission to seek and save us even by the reality of His own gruesome death to come on the cross.  The Marring of Sin required a perfect Sacrifice and Jesus was that ‘once-for-all-time’ sacrifice for sin.  Praise God!
