In Matthew 26:36-46, Jesus faced difficulty when it was time for Him to submit totally to God’s Will. God did not require Jesus to perform miracles, preach, or even teach on this night. This night God needed Jesus to present His life as a sacrifice for the sins of world. Our Lord felt the burden of our sin and agony of if it’s sting. So much to the point that He looked to Heaven and asked if there was another way to perform God’s Will on this night, nevertheless He relented to God’s Will despite how He felt. He prayed two more times with the understanding that this was the Will of God for His life and He (Jesus) was willing to submit to God’s Desire.
When we accept Jesus as our Lord, we (just as Jesus did) submit to God’s Will and not our own. We submit to Him by u
We believe and understand that God loves us (Romans 8:35-39) and the world (John 3:16) so we live life that shows our love of God and others (1 John 4:7-21) because God is love. So we are patient and kind; we do not envy or boast; we are not arrogant or rude. We do not insist on our own way; we are not irritable or resentful; we do not rejoice at wrongdoing, but we rejoice with the truth. We bear all things that pertain to God’s Will, we believe for God’s Will to be done in all things. We hope for God’s Will to be done in all things. And we are willing to endure all things pertaining to God’s Will. Because we firmly believe that God’s Love never ends and will not fail. So we gladly live a life of love because it helps others to experience His Love for them.
We live a life faith that is directed by His Word (Psalm 119:105) and His Spirit (Galatians 5:16-26, Proverbs 3). So we are dependent on God for direction in our daily lives. We courageously follow His direction despite where He may lead us because He is our Guide and we trust His plan (Jeremiah 29:11) we have submitted to His Will, We love Him, and we live a life of faith.
And lastly we live a new life. We know that our sins are no longer who we are because we have been crucified with Christ (Romans 6:6). So we are now are new creation in Christ Jesus our Lord (2 Corinthians 5:17) and we are willing to submit to His Will, express His love, and please Him with our Faith.
Stay focused you can do this.
"In His JOY!"
