“Make praying a habit for your lifetime”

 

The outline of Rev. Benjamin Oh’s Sermon at the KUMC of Metro Detroit

 

The following is today’s passage.

 

Luke 22:39-46

Verse 39  Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him.

           40  On reaching the place, He said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.”

           41  He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed.

           42  “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”

           43  An angel from heaven appeared to Him and strengthened Him.

           44  And being in anguish, He prayed more earnestly, and His sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.

           45  When He rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, He found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow.

           46  “Why are you sleeping?” He asked them. “Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”

 

What happened before Jesus went out to the Mount of Olives to pray:  He had the Passover dinner with His disciples, and then warned Peter about Satan’s upcoming temptations against him and his disowning of Jesus three times before the rooster crows that day.

 

Luke 22:31-34

Verse 31  “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.

           32  But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”

           33  But he replied, “Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and death.”

           34  Jesus answered, “I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me.

 

What happened after Jesus prayed on the Mount of Olives: Peter denied knowing Jesus three times.

 

Luke 22:54-62

Verse 54  Then seizing Him, they led Him away and took him into the house of the high priest. Peter followed at a distance.

           55  But when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sat down together, Peter sat down with them.

           56  A servant girl saw him seated there in the firelight. She looked closely at him and said, “This man was with Him.”

           57  But he denied it. “Woman, I don’t know Him,” he said.

           58  A little later someone else saw him and said, “You also are one of them.” “Man, I am not!” Peter replied.

           59  About an hour later another asserted, “Certainly this fellow was with Him, for he is a Galilean.”

           60  Peter replied, “Man, I don’t know what you’re talking about!” Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed.

           61  The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: “Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times.”

           62  And he went outside and wept bitterly.

 

Comparison with the other Gospels.

 

Matthew 26:40-44

Verse 40  Then He returned to His disciples and found them sleeping. “Could you men not keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter.

           41  “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.”

           42  He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.”

           43  When He came back, He again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy.

           44  So He left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing.

 

Mark 14:37-38

Verse 37  Then He returned to His disciples and found them sleeping. “Simon,” He said to Peter, “are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour?

           38  Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.”

 

Three important points

 

The first point: Lord Jesus prayed for one hour.

 

“Could you men not keep watch with me for one hour?” (Matthew 20:40)

“Simon,” He said to Peter, “are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour?” (Mark 14:37)

 

The second point: Three times Lord Jesus prayed for the will of Father to be done.

 

“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” (Luke 22:42)

 

Going a little farther, He fell with His face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” (Matthew 26:39)

 

He went away a second time, and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.” (Matthew 26:42)

 

So He left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing. (Matthew 26:44)

 

The third point: What Lord Jesus wanted to ask His disciples was, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”

 

Matthew 26:41 and Mark 14:38 - Written one time each.

“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”

 

Luke - Written two times.

Luke 22:40  “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.”

Luke 22:46  “Why are you sleeping?” He asked them, “Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.”

 

Lord Jesus had said these words to Peter specifically.

 

Matthew 26:40  Then He returned to His disciples and found them sleeping. He asked Peter. . .

Mark 14:37  Then He returned to His disciples and found them sleeping. “Simon,” He said to Peter, “are you asleep? . . .

 

Question: Why did Lord Jesus talk to Peter only, when there were three disciples sleeping?

 

Lord Jesus knew that Peter would face temptations, so He warned Peter that Satan would sift him as wheat, and asked Peter to stay awake and pray not to fall into temptation.

 

But Peter could not stay awake and pray. Why? Because his spirit was willing, but his body was weak.

 

Matthew 26:41  “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.”

 

Mark 14:38  “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.”

 

We should always remember that our spirit is willing to watch and pray, but our body is weak. That night Jesus’s disciples were all exhausted spiritually and physically.

 

Matthew 26:43  When He came back, He again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy.

 

Mark 14:40  When He came back, He again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy.

 

Luke 22:45  When He rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, He found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow.

 

Peter should have been more vigilant and prayerful on that day, but he was extremely exhausted spiritually and physically. So, he gave a good opportunity for Satan to attack him. We should never forget that when we are exhausted and weak, in spirit and in body, Satan will surely take advantage of the situation and attack us.

 

Because Peter didn’t stay awake and pray, he fell into Satan’s temptation and lost his battle. Later on he reflected upon his painful past failures and gave the following advice.

 

1 Peter 5:8  “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.”

 

We have to stay awake and pray. There is nothing that can replace our prayers.

If we don’t stay awake and pray, we will fall prey to the devil.

No matter how exhausted we are and how heavy our eyes are, we should always remember that our spirit wants us to pray.

Staying awake and praying are actually the same thing.

Praying means that we are awake, and when we are awake, we want to pray.

When we are not praying, we are asleep, and when we are sleeping, we cannot pray.

Therefore, we should stay awake and fight the devil when he attacks.

We should pray and be watchful.

Satan will attack to prevent us from praying and concentrating on Jesus, so we have to watch out and fight.

 

Lord Jesus and Apostle Paul want us to stay awake and pray.

 

Two times Lord Jesus asked His disciples to be on guard and stay alert and pray. (Mark 13:33, Mark 14:38)

 

Apostle Paul asks in his two letters that we should keep awake and pray.

 

Colossians 4:2  Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.

 

Prayers don’t happen automatically. With our best efforts and sacrifices, we can continue to pray.

 

Ephesians 6:18  Pray in the Spirit on all occasionswith all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

 

Question: How important is God to you? What kind of priority is given to God in your life?

 

Start your day with praying, as it is the most important thing in your life!

If God doesn’t come first into your thoughts and activities in the morning, then He will be given the last priority for the rest of your day. If you are not willing to seek God in the morning, that means you are not interested in Him. (E.M. Bounds)

 

Are you passionate for God? If you cannot stay awake for God, you will not be passionate for Him, even after you had enough sleep. (E.M. Bounds)

 

2 Chronicles 16:9  For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.

 

The law of practicing one hour a day: Start with one hour today!

 

Make praying for one hour a day a habit for your lifetime! [이 게시물은 관리자님에 의해 2016-10-03 19:57:11 읽는말씀(English&Korean)에서 이동 됨] [이 게시물은 관리자님에 의해 2016-10-03 19:59:08 읽는말씀(English&Korean)에서 이동 됨]
