|Chapter 28 Christ the Sacrifice March 22, 2018
NIV Mark 14:36
"Abba, Father," he said, "everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will."
1. Why does Christ now have the power to ask his Father for whatever He will?
2. What is the Gethsemane lesson of prayer?
3. What was Christ’s prayer of submission?
4. How die Jesus completely surrender His will to the Father?
5. How did Jesus learn to become obedient unto death?
6. What has Christ won for us that are opposites of what he suffered for us?
This is in harmony with the whole scheme of redemption. Our Lord always wins for us the opposite of what He suffered. He was bound that we might go free. He was made sin that we might become the righteousness of God. He died that we might live. He bore God’s curse that God’s blessing might be ours. He endured the not answering of His prayer, that our prayers might find an answer. Yea, He spoke, ‘Not as I will,’ that He might say to us, ‘If ye abide in me, ask what ye will; it shall be done unto you.’
