～ 太26：39 ～
The sacrifice, offering up of Himself, price He paid, and all that Jesus did, what was the thing that motivated Him to never give up till everything was accomplished? What made Him so willing, giving His all to the point of death?
The answer lies in His intimate relationship with Father God: Father God’s heart was His heart, Father God’s heartbeat was His heartbeat, all that was in His mind was to please Father God and to bring glory to Father God, never considered anything for Himself. That is a true love relationship, such is the power of love.
If only our serving, the so-called “sacrifice” and “price we pay”, and that meagre fast and prayer, are really all because of our thought and love for Jesus, and not just because we want our country to improve, or our church to have revival, and even more so, not because of personal blessings and benefits.
O Lord, help us to truly truly do everything because we love You, think of You and love to be with You…
“Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.””
