Discipleship

JESUS ' Model to Know God's Will

By Robert B. Munger
His ultimate answer, His resurrection, ascension, and outpoured spirit...

Matt. 26:36-46 

 

I. His strong assurance. "Father."

 

  • The character of God.  
 
2. His encouragement. "My father!"

 

  • Experience of the Father's trustworthiness. 

 

3. His outreach for others. "Watch with me!"

 

  • Wanted others with Him in the struggle. 

 

4. His acknowledgment of need. "Sorrowful--even to death!"

 

  • Owned His feelings openly--amazing freedom from guilt! 

 

5.               His acceptance of individuality. "A little farther!"

 

  • Willingness to go it alone. Ultimately we stand before God as a solitary! 

 

6.               His persistent appeal. "If it be possible!"

 

  • The petition not answered--the person was! His dominant desire always had been to glorify the Father (John 17:1-5) and save the lost (Luke 19:10). That deepest prayer was heard! 

 

7. His acceptance of the Father's better Way. "Never-the-less." 
 

 

8. His immediate experience, inner peace, and power endure. 
 

 

9. His ultimate answer, His resurrection, ascension, and outpoured spirit.
