Down To Earth: December 21

This week’s readings are based on the “God With Us” sermon from the Down To Earth series. In this season, we want to turn our focus to Jesus. Don’t just read the text, but let it read you throughout the week! 

Going a little farther, he fell to the ground and prayed that if possible the hour might pass from him. "Abba, Father," he said, "everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will."
Mark 14:35-36 (NIV)

Jesus dwelled with us so that He could guide us. In one short prayer, Jesus sets the foundation to guide our lives. The title He uses “Abba Father” (Daddy) shows a deep relationship. The posture of humility (Your will) shows a deep trust. We can only be guided when we have relationship and trust with God. Which do you need to deepen today?
