JESUS IN THE GARDEN
Matt .26; 36Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
37And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
38Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
39And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
40And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
Mark 26; 32And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray.
Shortly after the supper with his disciples Jesus took Peter James and John and went to Gethsemane. This was where he talked with God about what was ahead for him.
He asks his disciples sit while he went and prayed.
(1) His soul was sorrowful
From the weight of sins of the world.
From the fall of men
From the cross that was ahead
(2) Knowing his cross was just ahead.
The stress of his own not accepting him.
Praying to the father for his will to be done
(3) Jesus went a little farther and prayed.
He fell on his face
Called o my father if possible
Let this cup pass from me
Not my will but your will be done
God have your way
(4) Jesus was trading his life for ours
He was giving all for us
His precious blood was shed for you and i
We were on his heart and mind
He was reading himself for the final hour.
(5) Let this cup pass.
The weight of sin
The cruel death that was ahead
Future of man kind
Chose of life are death for all
The washing out sins in his blood.
(6) He returns his disciples were sleeping.
They could not stay one hour
They did not watch as he ask
The world today is still sleeping
The world today are not watching
Most people today want give Jesus 1 hour.
His prayers were for you and I
(7) The time is now ready.
Ready to enter the city
Ready to face his accusers
Ready for his walk with the cross
Ready to fulfill the scripture ( If I be lifted up I will draw all men unto me)
