Yield Not To Temptation (Matthew 26:36-41)

Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service

On the night of His betrayal, Jesus warned the disciples not to yield to temptation (Matt. 26:36-41). This was something He had taught them to pray about (Matt. 6:13). Let us consider a hymn that encourages us in the same way, “Yield Not To Temptation.”

Matthew 26:36–41 (Listen)

36 Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here, while I go over there and pray.” 37 And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled. 38 Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me.” 39 And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.” 40 And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping. And he said to Peter, “So, could you not watch with me one hour? 41 Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
