Faith Child – His gardens

Two gardens… with lessons for us as we do our Father’s will as He did.

At this time as we remember Jesus’ experience in the Garden of Gethsemane, when He prayed to His Father in heaven, we know it was the culmination of His love for a people who did not show love, but left Him alone with His Father.  As it was then with Christ, so will we experience that loneliness with only the Father, as we labor for Him.

It was there He overcame the battle of love when He said “not my will but thine be done” and  we will have to submit to our Father’s will,  so we  may,  by and with His wisdom and strength, win one more soul to Him.

It was in the Garden of Gethsemane that He sweat drops of blood, of agony and disappointment. It was there He composed His fortitude to go all the way to Calvary. As we remain in His will, may we gather fortitude that rests only in Him, that in our weakness and being weary of labour, we shall be made strong in Him. Praise The Lord

GardenTomb200x292The Garden Tomb in Jerusalem is believed to be the burial place of Jesus. 2,000 years after his death, followers of Christ still flock to see the empty tomb, one of the strongest proofs of the resurrection.

It was at the empty to tomb,  Jesus’ burial cloths were left neatly folded inside, hardly the act of hurrying grave robbers. Angels said Jesus had risen from the dead. It was the first proof of His resurrection.

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. “Greetings,” he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.” (NIV)

It was there the risen Christ first appeared toMary Magdalene and other holy women. Even the apostles did not believe Mary when she told them the tomb was empty. Jesus, who always had special respect for these women, honored them as the first eyewitnesses to his resurrection. And as the news of what happened at the Garden tomb spread, hearts were turned from fear to courage, with new hope in a risen  Lord. So may we live in the will of the Father with a livng hope that burns bright, for what He says in His Word  comes to pass.

Romans 6:8-11
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. (NIV)

Listen to the words of the song, then sow the seeds of agape love to all He brings in our path.

I come to the garden alone….revel in it…

Romans 1:4-5 
And Jesus Christ our Lord was shown to be the Son of God when God powerfully raised him from the dead by means of the Holy Spirit. Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey him, bringing glory to his name. (NLT)

Let us in fervent faith proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, with free abandon, for we know The Lord Himself will draw those He knows will love Him with all their hearts, minds and strength.

  2. The resurrection of Christ is one of the best attested events in history, but there are none so blind as those who WILL not see. Belief in the resurrection means believing that God IS. It means believing all that Jesus taught. It means believing the written Word of God . . .

    . . . and that means that the person becomes ACCOUNTABLE to God and responsible to God. It means that the person must die to self and submit to God . . . and that is unacceptable to unredeemed mankind, so he denies the resurrection and tries to convince everyone it never happened.

    May our lights shine forth into the world of darkness in living proof that Jesus is alive!
