word for the day 04 02 2015, Matthew 26:39b, Gethsemane!!

It is Holy Thursday April 2nd. The fifth day of Holy Week. Today we consider and meditate on the garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed, and prayed, and prayed.

Listen to the word of God to us today.

Matthew 26:39b “O my father, if it be possible, Let this cup pass from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt.” (KJV)
Picture this scene. Darkness had settled over the city, the streets were empty. There in the Garden, Jesus and the disciple went. We are told that Jesus knowing what he faced was sorrowful and not just heavy, but very heavy. There in the garden as he was about to face death for you and for me, he prayed. What a prayer? Essentially he was saying not my will, but thine be done. We sometimes ask-was there not another way Lord? This week as we consider Easter, remember what Jesus did for us on the cross. The man of sorrows has become the king of Kings, and the Lord of Lords.

Prayer for the day: Father, thank you for the cross on which Jesus died. Thank you for providing for us our greatest need of salvation. This we pray in Jesus name. Amen.
