Did Jesus really hope to change the will of God? By your prayers, do you hope to change the will of God? Or, if the will of God is always done, why bother to pray at all?
How do you determine what is the will of God in your life? As you look back on your life, can you see times when God's will was clear or when you struggled with it.
Regardless of how you have or have not responded to God in the past, how has God been working to bring you to this point in your life?
In a crisis situation, how do you usually respond?
like the impulsive disciple with sword in hand
like the other disciples who fled the scene
like the pacifist Jesus with Scripture in hand
like the streaking disciple, leaving sword, Scripture, and clothes behind
