"Gut Wrench in the Garden" Matthew 26:36-46 (Matthew: The Power of the King)

Following their celebration of the Passover meal, Jesus takes His disciples to the garden known as Gethsemane. It is here, in these moments before His betrayal and arrest that Jesus spends several agonizing hours in prayer. It is gut wrenching in every sense of the word. And yet, it is in His gut-wrenching agony that we find help for our gut-wrenched world. This week, we are invited to step closer into what Jesus felt, what Jesus faced, and how He fought for the salvation of His people.
