HAVE YOU BEEN TO GETHSEMANE? ……Please read this!
Have you ever visited Gethsemane recently? It’s inspiring and very refreshing there. There is no other place on earth as pleasant and peaceful as this wonderful place called Gethsemane. The Gethsemane in topic here is not a country, state or a street; it’s not a church or physical place. It’s a spiritual place that every one who cares for his soul and to make heaven must be visiting as it demands.
Gethsemane is a place where you surrender your struggles unto God and receive strength in return to see you through in your onward journey to eternal life.
STRUGGLING WITH SIN?
Have you been struggling with sinful habit? What you need is to visit Gethsemane. Have you been struggling with a particular sin in your life? Rising and falling in your Christian life? Maybe you think it doesn’t matter or you can’t give it up? Have you been struggling with un-forgiveness, unsettled restitution or any matter in your life and you find it hard to let go? What you need is to surrender all to Him now, all, not 99%; so that you don’t loose all. The problem why you keep confessing and committing sin is because you have not surrendered all and repented completely. You need to surrender all sins in your life, not one or some, and you need to repent, that is, you are ready to forsake those sins. Then you confess and ask Him to take over from here.
STRUGGLING WITH YOUR WILL?
Gethsemane is a point where you surrender your ways, your wills, your wish and your wants to God and you accept His will and word into your life. Have you being struggling with God’s will in your personal life? For your marriage, ministry, etc? No pretense, it’s not easy but it’s easier to surrender to God than to struggle. Jesus understands, He has been in such situation before and He wants you to visit Gethsemane as He did; where He surrendered all to His Father’s will saying, “Not as I will, but as You will.”
No pretense, struggle is natural and human, it was applicable to Jesus Christ likewise as He was about to move forward to Calvary. At Gethsemane, He expressed His struggle to God but He surrendered His struggle, His wish and want to God’s will. Have you been struggling with your life, living as you want? You urgently need to surrender all to Jesus now and let Him give you a brand new life with eternal value.
STRUGGLE FOR STRENGTH
When we surrender our struggles to God in sincere prayer and confession, He gives us the strength that will sustain and hold us through it all, no matter how difficult. And at the end we shall sing songs of praise and victory! Take it all to God in prayer with all sincerity and surrender; He is waiting for you there!
“Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, “Sit here while I go and pray over there.” 37 And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed. 38 Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.” 39 He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” – Matthew 26:36-39
“Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. 44 And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.” – Luke 22:43, 44
