Abba, Father, everything is possible with you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.
From Rich Carroll:
The Garden of Gethsemane was an olive grove whose olives were picked each season (still today) and turned into the finished product of oil that served so many purposes. In order for the pure virgin oil to be squeezed out of the olives they had to be crushed by a stone called a gethsemane, thus the name of the garden.
After taking part in that last supper and the washing of His disciple's feet, Jesus led them out to this garden where He was overcome with grief and sadness. In the midst of this darkness the King of the Universe fell down to the ground and cried out to His Father to take this cup away from Him. The cup of His Father's wrath and judgement upon the whole world was on Jesus' shoulders. In asking that it be taken from Him, Jesus, as both fully divine and fully human, casts His heart before His 'Abba' that this suffering might pass from Him. What a gut wrenching struggle! Suffering beyond comparison. And in the midst of this inward turmoil and fight Jesus repeats these words at 3 different times of prayer: "Yet not what I will, but what you will."
He is crushed and the oil of our salvation and redemption comes pouring out of His heart in Jesus' words of submission. "During the days of Jesus' life on earth, He offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save Him from death, and He was heard because of His reverent submission. Although He was a son, he learned obedience from what He suffered and, once made perfect, He became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey Him..." Hebrews 5:7-9
Our freedom that was secured at the cross was won at Gethsemane. There was no other way. "Not my will but yours be done." Yes, you and I are loved this much.
