Text: Matthew 26:42 Then Jesus left them a second time and prayed, “My Father! If this cup cannot be taken away unless I drink it, your will be done.” 1. Jesus' Prayer in the Garden Then Jesus went with them to the olive grove called Gethsemane, and he said, “Sit here while I go over there to pray. Jesus was in agony. His sweat was like drops of blood. Jesus was human and suffered as much as we would have. He said, "Father, if there is any other way...." But in order for us to be saved from our sins, it was impossible. He prayed God's will be done. No one ever suffered like Jesus did. 2. Jesus' Cup His cup was of suffering, sin, abandonment. He was despised and rejected by men. Isaiah 53:3: He was despised and rejected— a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. God, who is holy, could not look on sin on the cross. He turned His back of Jesus. 3. Jesus' Commitment Jesus trusted the Father. “My Father! If this cup cannot be taken away unless I drink it, your will be done.” Jesus was 100% in line with the Father's plan. What a sober and touching sermon Rev. Kellar preached this Sunday. We head to the cross on Palm Sunday.
