Mark 14:32-42 32 And they went to a place called Gethsemane. And he said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” 33 And he took with him Peter and James and John, and began to be greatly distressed and troubled. 34 And he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death. Remain here and watch.”[d] 35 And going a little farther, he fell on the ground and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. 36 And he said, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” 37 And he came and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not watch one hour? 38 Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 39 And again he went away and prayed, saying the same words. 40 And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were very heavy, and they did not know what to answer him. 41 And he came the third time and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and taking your rest? It is enough; the hour has come. The Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42 Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand.”
I.Why did Jesus ask these three to come with him?
These are the disciples who bragged that they would be able to suffer with Jesus.
He wanted them to be with him during his time of agony,
II. Figuratively speaking, let us take the shoes from off our feet because we are on very holy ground.
The sorrow of Jesus.
The cup that Jesus was about to drink is the wrath of God leashed upon him because of your sin.
My friend, doing the will of God often involves a conflict of desires.
Our own suffering ultimately comes to us from God
III. “Why should we be changed because of it?”
We have to do the will of God whether we feel like it or not.
On the other side there was going to be joy.
