Summary: There are 7 times that Jesus Bled for you and I...
The Blood that Ran…
Part 2- The Blood in the garden
Recap part 1.
Intro: We now find ourselves in this story in a place where we see Jesus in a garden. Just hours from Death just hours from his blood shedding experience.
We find Jesus in turmoil in a place of utter agony the bible says.
Now the reason that Jesus was in the garden to pray on the night before his crucifixion was not coincident it was mandated by GOD.
The reason was that in the garden is where man lost his salvation and was sentenced in Gen. 3:19 “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; …” to the punishment of working for a living if you will. God made him work by the sweat of his brow.
So in turn Jesus in the garden shed his blood by the sweat of his brow to win back man’s favor for God.
I. The work of Jesus.
Mat 4:24 (KJV) And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.
a. We often think of the works that Jesus did
b. We know that through the study of scripture (mark 6:3 (quickview) ) and through the study of history (jewish tradition that the son followed his fathers occupation) that Jesus was a carpenter.
c. So we know that he had to live by sweat of his brow (before he went into the ministry)
d. We know of the miracles that he did. (to name a few)
e. But what about the time he prayed for you and I?
g. That would be you and I today
i. The work of Jesus was for no other reason but to save the lost in a dying world.
j. “you must serve a living savior to save a dying world.”
The second time that Jesus bleed for us was in the Garden of Gethsemane
II. Jesus’ prayer time
a. (vs. 41) Jesus went as the bible says “…about a stone’s cast…”
b. Jesus was removing all obstacles from his NATURAL life in order to walk into the presence of GOD almighty
c. We too should remove all obstacles that hinder us.
1. We can’t pray while watching tv.
