GLIMPSES OF THE GREAT GOD: DAY NINETEEN
"Then Jesus went with His disciples to a place called Gethsemane,
and He said to them,
'Sit here while I go over there and pray.'
He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with Him
and He began to be sorrowful and troubled.
Then He said to them, 'My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death.
Stay here and keep watch with me.'
Going a little farther, He fell with His face to the ground and prayed,
'My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me.
Yet not as I will but as you will.'"
Matthew 26: 36-39
"During the days of Jesus’ life on earth
He offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears
to the one who could save Him from death,
and He was heard because of His reverent submission."
Will we ever understand what it cost Jesus to say “yes” to His Father? We do not know the risk He took by becoming a man. Had He ever once failed to trust His Father’s love through all the tests He had to endure, He would have suffered eternal separation from the Father because He would have sinned and been condemned along with us. Jesus did not fail us then and He will not fail us now!
