The Father's Will vs. Our Safety and Comfort

John 18.1 – When Jesus had spoken these words, He went out with his disciples across the Kidron Valley, where there was a garden, which He and His disciples entered.

Here is Jesus, knowing now is His time to be taken and killed, going back to the same places He always went to. He didn’t change His prayer habits because things were dangerous or even ‘really bad.’ Jesus had prayed in this garden before, and he was going to go and pray there tonight.

In John 11.16 Thomas had said “Let’s go too, so we can die with Him.” He said that because the Jews had tried to stone Jesus the last time they were in Jerusalem. Jesus went back there anyway and here He is, 7 chapters later, still alive!

Jesus lived according to the Father’s wishes, not according to the need to preserve His own safety.

//talked some more out with my wife and came to this verse:

If our own safety or comfort is even 1 click above His will, we are not a disciple
