HUNGRY…for an escape

On Palm Sunday, we mark Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, and look to the last week of his life.  Ahead of the day of his crucifixion, Jesus invited Peter, James and John to be with him at Gethsemane.  You can read the story in Mark 14.32-52.

In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prayed like he had never prayed, seeking from the Father an escape that would enable him to avoid the excruciating pain he would endure the next morning.  What did his discples do?  Peter, James and John – all of whom had promised to stick it out with Jesus – slept.  What happens when we are asleep, spiritually?  We’ll answer that question in the message.
