To this point everything in Jesus’ life has been prologue. Now He goes to the the Garden of Gethsemane on The Mt. of Olives
Jesus throws Himself on the ground and prays
1. There are some things a parent (God) will give a child whether the child asks or not.
2. Some things a parent (God) will never give a child no matter how often the child asks.
3. Some things a parent (God) will give a child but only if the child asks
How can you tell the difference between the things God will do whether or not we ask, the things God will do not matter how often we ask and the things God will do but only if we ask?
Sometimes a night is just the end of a day. But sometimes, it’s more: night can bring darkness and loss, or relief and peace. Nights are when we stop moving and consider life. The story of God’s people is full of great nights, when conflict peaks, when people explore big questions, and when lives are lost and won.
