SAA Notes

Jesus knew Peter – what was in him, what he would do. Jesus still loved and persevered with Peter. Always take heart and turn back to Him – and then strengthen your brethren.

SJA Notes

“Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.”

Here we have the pattern of our King and Lord, our Master showing us how to live, the model by which we mark our standard of obedience.

Jesus submitted Himself under God’s will to an end that we will never have to – He did it SO that we will never have to!

Onwards the steps to Calvary, Jesus knew He was walking to His death. His becoming a curse, so that the curse could be lifted. His being rejected by His Father, so that we could be accepted.

This is the model of the Righteous One, our Saviour.

Let’s be encouraged and convicted to each day be in prayer, and when we wrestle with the Lord about how His will is being worked, may it always be with the same humility.

“Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.”

* Father God,

Thank You for Jesus.

Thank You that we can know You, love You, that we can be Your people because of Him.

Thank You for Your steadfast love and faithfulness that we see so clearly in Jesus’ work on the cross.

Thank You for saving us.

Amen.
