Come and See His Agony

His Agony

Matthew 26:36-46

Main Thing to Know:

What if God is at His best when I’m at my worst?

 

1. What happened in the Garden of Gethsemane?

-We see His humanity

 

If the Mount of Transfiguration pulled aside the veil to reveal his divine glory . . . [in] Gethsemane the veil is pulled aside to reveal his humanity.

Sinclair Ferguson

-We see His struggle

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men

(Romans 1:18)

 

For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him

(2 Corinthians 5:21)

 

–  We see His submission

What the holiness of God demanded . . . the love of God provided.

—Chip Ingram

2. Why does it matter today?

(1) Our prayers aren’t always answered as we want

 

(2) Our circumstances are controlled by God

Shall I not drink the cup which My Father has given Me?

(John 18:11)

(3) Our lives are not about us

The love of God wants what’s best

The wisdom of God knows what’s best

The power of God accomplishes what’s best

(4) Our salvation is made possible by Someone else
