Gethsemane (Sermon Jam)

Gethsemane (Sermon Jam)

This sermon jam titled "Gethsemane" comes from a sermon preached by Reverend Dr. Vincent G. Artese called "Gethsemane".

Gethsemane is a place of great mental and spiritual suffering. To suffer is to go through an experience. Each disciple will face a similar test as Christ faced. All Christians must remain united with Christ through sufferings and experiences. One must despise self and follow after Christ. Jesus warns those who want to run from their Gethsemane that they cannot be saved. We must give up our rights to ourselves and die to ourselves. Christ did not want to suffer as He did but He said, “not My will but Thy will be done.” This is a change in nature, habits, character, and will. Our thinking is the key that changes everything else. The only way to holiness is through obedience which leads to righteousness. Our mind is not our own, we must stay in Christ. Habits become our nature. We must get our thinking into shape and be disciplined. We are to live in faith not lust or fear. Our thinking must turn into actions. Are you acting according to how you think? Gethsemane is to do, not simply to talk. Christ left Gethsemane a willing sacrifice. We must arrive at the truth even if we don’t like the way to get there. We must hear and act; our Gethsemane must be a personal event. Gethsemane is a place of refinement. May we say like Christ in the midst of trials, “Not my will but Thy will be done.”
