Under Pressure

Overwhelmed, Jesus, in his full humanity, pursues the Father.

Text is Mark 14:32-50

Final reflection questions are:

• Get a current hardship firmly in mind. How do you feel about this hardship? Tell the truth to God.

• Where is there evidence of God’s presence in this hardship? Is there anything you can be thankful for?

• If you cannot find God in your hardship, spend some time with Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. What does he want to tell you?
