    Matthew 26:36-46
    Questions: What was confusing, convicting, or encouraging from this study of Scripture?   How often are you aware that you are in a continual spiritual battle?   Jesus is fully God and fully man, which of those is harder for you to comprehend?   Gethsemane literally means olive press. Jesus was pressed all the way to death for our sin. His suffering brought us our salvation. Does this change the way that you view your suffering and hardships? Do you see them as tools in God’s hands to produce more genuine faith in your life (1 Peter 1:6-7)?   Read Hebrews 4:14-16—Does it help you to know that Jesus is a high priest who understands your weaknesses? Does it help you in your daily walk with God to know that Jesus experienced the full depth of human agony? Does Jesus’ night in Gethsemane shape the way you cry out to God when life gets difficult?   Though he did not need them, Jesus invited the disciples to join his mission. God doesn’t need us either, but he invites us to be on mission with him. How does it affect you to know that God wants you to join him in his work to see people live with Christ as Lord?
