Sermon Notes

This week Pastor Deric begins our series Remembering the Cross with a sermon entitled “How Far Will You Go with Jesus?”

Matthew 26:36-46
Ice Breaker: What was the first full time job you ever had?

1. What is the meaning of “Gethsemane”, and where was the garden located?
2. What does Jesus mean in Matthew 26:41 when he says, “the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak”?
3. What did Jesus say the disciples were to do to overcome temptation?
4. List 3 principles of prayer you can learn from Jesus’ prayers in Gethsemane.
5. What can help you to become more consistent in being watchful in prayer?
6. In Matthew 26:39 Jesus prays “nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will”. In what areas of your life do you need to surrender like this in obedience to God?
7. What did you find helpful or challenging about the message?
“The Bible is the story of two gardens: Eden and Gethsemane. In the first, Adam took a fall. In the second, Jesus took a stand. In the first, God sought Adam. In the second, Jesus sought God. In Eden, Satan led Adam to a tree that led to his death. From Gethsemane, Jesus went to a tree that led to our life.” – Max Lucado
