Jesus in the Garden

Jesus knew He was soon going to die on the cross. He needed strength and courage to face this painful death.

He went to the garden of Gethsemane to pray. We sometimes forget that Jesus was a man. He had the same concerns in His body as we do. He felt pain and suffering. He was getting ready to take on all our sin. He was sinless.

He prayed 3 times that He would not have to endure this but then He told the FATHER, not My will but Yours. Jesus willingly was ready to die on the cross for our sin.

He said something else to His disciples. Watch and pray that you fall not into temptation.

What a lesson for us today. Trust God and be willing to do His will even if it is difficult. He will give us strength. Then be in prayer about everything. We do not want to give in to temptation.

And 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. Matthew 26:39

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matthew 26:41
