Thought For The Day – Matthew 26:36-37

*Pastor’s Note: This is from Pastor/Evangelist Glenn Dawson from World Ministry for Christ. I have followed him on Facebook for a while and he graciously posts his daily devotions and prayer on my Facebook Group.

I had just come back to social media from a medical/family situation that warranted me being away for a bit and the following is the devotional that he had posted and it truly touched my heart on this particular day.

My question to you, the reader is this; do you consider what you do for the Lord when doing it? Are you giving your ALL in the task that is at hand? Do you ever consider the significance in the eternal scheme of things in the things you do in service to the Lord now?

This is a great devotional that causes you to think about those very things.

Make sure you visit his Facebook page and check out his other daily devotionals as well as his other daily posts; you will be blessed and make sure you bless him with a like or comment. Remember, these teachings and exhortations are a sacrifice of praise and worship to the Lord in service to the Lord AND to each of us!

Thought for the Day

Matthew 26:36-37 (KJV)

Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. And He took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.


Jesus had reasons for choosing each of His disciples, but He did not treat all of them the same. Here, in Gethsemane, He asked most of them to wait while He took John, James, and Peter with Him farther along for a time of prayer. Why were those three chosen? Scripture doesn’t give specifics, but participation in the Kingdom of God does not mean that everyone will be given the same opportunities. Our responses to Jesus’ invitations make a difference in time and for eternity, and it’s tragic that we have been led to believe our responses are insignificant. We are called to serve Him with our gifts, talents, abilities, and resources during our days under the sun. How we live really does matter, and we will be eternally grateful for everything we have invested in the service of our LORD and King.

Our responses to God are investments in our time under the sun and our eternity. They make a difference.


Heavenly Father, I am thankful for Your wisdom and judgments. Help me to honor You by consistently cooperating with Your Holy Spirit and yielding to Your will. I choose to follow You faithfully, with my eyes set on Jesus. In His name I pray, amen and amen.
