Luke 22:42 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 22:42

Saying, Father, if thou be willing
If it be consistent with thy will of saving sinners, and which thou hast declared to me, and I have undertook to perform: the other evangelists say, "if it be possible"; (See Gill on Matthew 26:39) remove this cup from me;
meaning, either his present sorrows and distress, or his approaching sufferings and death, which he had in view, or both: nevertheless not my will;
as man, for Christ had an human will distinct from, though not contrary to his divine will: but thine be done;
which Christ undertook, and came into this world to do; and it was his meat and drink to do it, and was the same with his own will, as the Son of God; (See Gill on Matthew 26:39), and (See Gill on Matthew 26:42).
