Mark 14


Prairie Chick said...

Such a long and dramatic passage. I think what stood out to me the most was the dullness of mind the disciples had to possess in order to sleep in the garden while their closest friend and mentor suffered the most difficult night of his life. Am I dull to the suffering of my friends and neighbors? I know that I am sometimes. Other times I desperately want to stand in the gap for them and support them through trial. I pray that I could learn more and more to exercise the gifts of compassion and intercession.

"'Abba,Father,'he said,'everything is possible for you.Please take this cup of suffering away from me.Yet I want your will not mine.'"v 36

Jesus did not want to die,but he knew that it was the only way to save us. God loves us so very much that he sent his only son to die so we could live forever in heaven.Sometimes I don't realize how hard it was for God to send his son to die for us and how much he loves us.

Some of the people there became angry. They said to one another,"Why waste this perfume? it could have been sold for more than a years pay. The the money could have been given to poor people." So they found fault with the woman. vs 4-5

The women had some very expensive perfume, she could have sold it and given the money to the poor but she knew that Jesus is the most important person so she broke the perfume bottle over Jesus's head.
