Lessons from the men in Gethsemane…. • The lesson from JUDAS: >You can kiss the door of heaven and NEVER GET IN. >He is a warning that you can have both religious association and religious participation and not really BE SAVED. >He could have been saved, but he WOULD NOT.
• The lesson from PETER: >He made three mistakes: *He fought the wrong ENEMY. *He used the wrong WEAPON. *He had the wrong ATTITUDE.
• The lesson from the ANGELS: >Angels are most often described as MIGHTY warriors with swords. >Angels are the mightiest warriors in the UNIVERSE.
• The lesson from MALCHUS: >You don’t have to live with your HURT. >Jesus can touch you and HEAL you today.
Jesus did not call for rescue because….. • He LOVED you too much. • He was willing to suffer to ABSORB punishment for your sin. • The other great miracle could not have happened-- SALVATION.
