The suffering of Jesus begins in the Garden of Gethsemane. The prayer Jesus makes in this garden is the prayer we all need to make if we want to live in the garden of God. We focus our hearts on how to pray Thy Will Be Done! (John 18:1, Matthew 26:36, 39)
While Jesus lived in the geographical area that might have been considered the Promised Land, he also talked about a better land – the Kingdom of God. Many of the stories Jesus told referenced a garden and how we need to live in that garden. This week we will look at the garden Jesus calls us to build on earth – the Kingdom of God.
While paradise, the garden of God, was lost – we never stop longing for it in our hearts. For Israel, the Promised Land might have been a location, but is was also an ideal and a way of life. We still long to live in this Promised Land. We look deep within to rekindle our desire for the Promised Land. (Genesis 13:10, Exodus 3:7-9, Isaiah 51:3)
