39 And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him.

40 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.

41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,

42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

45 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,

46 And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

The Shepherd Struck, the Sheep Scattered

“Awake, sword, against my shepherd,
   against the man who is close to me!”
   declares the Lord Almighty.
“Strike the shepherd,
   and the sheep will be scattered,
   and I will turn my hand against the little ones.”

Why are ye so fearful?
- Mark 4:40

The disciples appeared to be in danger, and fear filled their hearts. They did not realize that they were the care and charge of Jesus, or else, knowing Him, their fears could have had no place.

Beloved, you are in the hands of your loving Saviour. He has charge of you and all your concerns. He has numbered the very hairs of your head, and watches over you every moment, by night, as well as by day. He is ever present, His eye cannot be diverted from you, His omnipotence is engaged to defend you, His fulness to supply you, His wisdom to guide you, and all His perfections will be glorified in your everlasting holiness and happiness. He says, “I am glorified in them.”

Why are you so fearful? Jesus is a very present help, He is a Friend that loveth at all times, He is your shield, and will be your exceeding great reward. But perhaps you have wandered from Him; your conscience accuses you, and Satan tempts you to despond; go, go, and return unto Him, delay not a moment, cast yourself, guilty as you are, at His feet, confess all, and give yourself to Him afresh. He will receive you graciously, love you freely, and restore to you the joys of His salvation.

The saints should never be dismay’d,
Nor sink in hopeless fear;
For when they least expect His aid,
The Saviour will appear.

30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the Mount of Olives. 31 Then saith JESUS unto them, All ye shall be offended because of Me this night; for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad 32 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee. 33 Peter answered and said unto HIM, Though all men shall be offended because of THEE, yet will I never be offended. 34 JESUS said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny ME thrice. 35 Peter said unto HIM, Though I should die with THEE, yet will I not deny THEE. Likewise also said all the disciples.

James Montgomery Boice

We are to believe and follow Christ in all things, including his words about Scripture. And this means that Scripture is to be for us what it was to him: the unique, authoritative, and inerrant Word of God, and not merely a human testimony to Christ, however carefully guided and preserved by God. If the Bible is less than this to us, we are not fully Christ’s disciples.

From the ruins of war, we forged him to the shape of man, and from the ashes of life, we cast the fading remnants of souls into his frame. Then we named him Peace, and he rose to shield us. Upon his shoulders were we carried across the burning seas of strife, and by his sword fell the bearers of oblivion. And we called him Peace, for that is where he took us, and that is where he kept us safe.
