Matthew 26:36-46 - Ray Bentley, April 18, 2020
The prayer that changed the world happened in the Garden of Gethsemane and has reverberated through all the centuries, for 2,000 years. The Passion Jesus demonstrated on that momentous night has been depicted in music, books, poetry,and films for centuries. Even our language has been affected by these events, giving us phrases such as “he who lives by the sword dies by the sword,” “the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak” and “sweating great drops of blood.” Gethsemane is a place where we face God’s will head-on. At Gethsemane we look honestly and clearly at what God has called us to do. We consider that call and we count the cost.
