Application Thoughts

The scene at the Garden of Gethsemane is one in which Jesus' humanness was most cruelly exposed. 

It is a scene of greatest despair. But it is also the scene of mankind's greatest hope. Not only because of Jesus' willingness to take up the cross (without which, we would all be eternally lost) but also because we catch a glimpse of the Divine's influence on the Human. 

Thankfully, we as His disciples, too, have been given a Divine Influencer - The Holy Spirit. And it is He that will move us to obedience. What we can offer is our total readiness to give up whatever we might be called to by God.

Will you take one more step towards Christ-likeness and give God control over the one thing that you struggle most to let go of?
