JESUS FALLS FOR THE FIRST TIME

 

 

Jesus has willingly embraced the cross,

but His physical body was weak from lack of sleep,

from the pressures of arrest and trial,

and from torture and beating.

 

The spirit is willing,

but the flesh is weak.

Jesus say, Yes,

but His holy body hesitated

and He fell to His knees,

determining to rise again even in His weakness.

 

Lord, You embraced and shouldered Your cross,

but Your body was weak.

Your Body is still weak:

Your people shrink from the weight of suffering.

In our weakness, Lord, let us pray:

Your will be done.

Your will be done.

 

Jesus, You were first a carpenter:

build us into what You desire,

and secure every joint tightly,

that we may hold together.

Plane the rough surfaces of our relationships.

We are Your workmanship-

Your will be done.

Your will be done.

 

Jesus, You said 'YES' to the Father's will;

and only Your body hesitated.

May we, Your Body, no longer hesitate,

but follow You in Your obedience, saying:

Your will be done.

Your will be done.
