Scripture: Luke 22:39-44
39 Coming out, He went to the Mount of Olives, as He was accustomed, and His disciples also followed Him. 40 When He came to the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.”
41 And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed, 42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” 43 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. 44 And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
- How amazing is it to think that Jesus knowingly, willing went to cross, enduring the shame and humiliation and scorn, for you and I?
- Christ, who is our example of holy living, faced even with the horror of the cross submitted His will to The Father. In what ways do you still seek to have our own will done rather than God’s?
