I am a born again believer. I am not afraid to share my faith. "But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in heaven." Matthew 10:33
Mark 14:36 New International Version (NIV)36 “Abba,[a] Father,” he said, “everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.”
Whew! Jesus is such a better person than I am. I would be telling God I can not do this. I am sure the angels were waiting on Jesus to say come get me. But Jesus did not do that. He willing went to the garden and waited on the soldiers to get him. There was another way out of that garden. He could have ran but instead stayed and even showed mercy to the solder and reattached his ear. He willingly went to the cross and died for use. He knew what was about to take place and he was willing to do what was needed alone.
Sometimes I do not take into consideration the following verses:
John 15:17-19 King James Version (KJV)17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
Verse 18- they will hate you because they do not understand you. We are not of the this world and it is time to stop acting like it. I show love to others not because I always love them but because God created them in his image. I love them and hate the sin in their life. It can be hard when the person spews hate at me but I have to remember that God judges not me.
