The sky, the mountain, and the sea.
Matthew 26:41 – “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (NKJV)
The richness of God’s word. Matthew Chapter 26 is so full of the mercy and grace of God. Jesus prepared the disciples for His departure. This chapter brings forth the story of the woman with the alabaster box. The establishment of the new covenant through His blood is made known. His betrayer is brought out in the open. The Last Supper is established to celebrate the Passover. Communion is established and why. Peter’s denial is predicted and described as it happens.
What are you experiencing that Jesus cannot bring you through? Do you trust Him? Are you willing to let go of what binds you? Are you willing to give up the temporary for the eternal? Just asking…
This chapter shows many aspects of man’s character that make us recognize our need for Jesus. Betrayal, greed, denial, humility, and the weakness of the flesh are just a few of the things that come forth. Jesus went through it all before death on the cross. His sacrifice for us is absolutely amazing. There is nothing that you will go through that Jesus did not. And, through it all God said that He would never leave us nor forsake us. In Jesus’s death and resurrection, He leaves us with the Holy Spirit to comfort, guide, direct, and bring us even closer to God.
