Our passage today presents us with one of the most incredible scenes in Mark's gospel. Here, in Mark 14:32-52, we find Jesus praying to the Father moments before His betrayal, arrest and subsequent execution. Jesus, the Son of God, prays out of an intimate relationship with the Father, one of extreme trust. What informs your prayers? As believers, it must be the Gospel--the saving life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Gospel, which when embraced brings us into a saving relationship with God, teaches us that God is for us; that God loves us; that God is able to use pain and suffering for His glorious saving purposes; and that God is sovereign. The Gospel brings our new hearts in line with the heart of God! The Gospel enables God's people to pray with Jesus: "Yet not what I will, but what you will." Praise God for the Gospel that brings us into an intimate relationship with the God of the Universe! King Jesus and His saving work have made this possible!
