Week 1 – Friday
Mark 14:36 NLT ”Abba, Father,” he cried out, “everything is possible for you. Please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.”
Again we find the intimate term of endearment, “Abba.” You will recall from Monday that this name implies intimacy. In this verse, we find Jesus crying out to His Father before going to be crucified. He was acknowledging His Father, He was recognizing that his Father had a higher will than His own. What a perfect example! If Jesus Christ who is our Savior and King could acknowledge His Father and submit to His will, how much more should we be willing to do the same? In what areas do you need to submit to your Father today?

We invite you to share your insights and thoughts by leaving a comment below or by replying to another comment.
If you would like, you can unpack the verse S.O.A.P style:
S = Scripture; what is it that I’m reflecting upon.
O = Observation; what does this mean to me, what do I notice? What got my attention? Can I rephrase this in my own words?
A = Application; how can I apply this into my life? What action can I take as a result of what I just learned
P = Prayer; based on what I’ve learned and my application/action, pray – talk to God about your insight, ask for help, offer thanksgiving.
