MATTHEW 26 : 41


WATCH AND PRAY, THAT YE ENTER

NOT INTO TEMPTATION: THE SPIRIT

INDEED IS WILLING, BUT THE FLESH

IS WEAK.


( KJV STUDY BIBLE)


HE TOOK ONLY PETER , AND JAMES,

AND JOHN, WITH HIM INTO THAT

CORNER OF THE GARDEN WHERE HE

SUFFERED HIS AGONY. HE LEFT THE

REST AT SOME DISTANCE, WITH THIS

CHARGE, " SIT HERE WHILE I GO

OVER  THERE AND PRAY".

CHRIST WENT TO PRAY ALONE,

THOUGH HE HAD LATELY PRAYED

WITH HIS DISCIPLES, JOHN 17:1

HE TOOK THESE THREE WITH HIM

BECAUSE THEY HAD BEEN THE

WITNESSES OF HIS GLORY IN HIS

TRANSFIGURATION , AND THAT

WOULD PREPARE THEM TO BE THE

WITNESSES OF HIS AGONY.

THOSE ARE BEST PREPARED TO

SUFFER WITH CHRIST, WHO HAVE BY

FAITH BEHELD HIS GLORY. IF WE

HOPE TO REIGN WITH HIM, WHY

SHOULD WE NOT EXPECT TO SUFFER

WITH HIM?
