In chapter 26 of Matthew’s gospel, you see Jesus taking his disciples to the Garden of Gethsemane. Their purpose was to pray. Jesus knew what was before Him, and therefore took his most faithful friends to intercede on His behalf. WOW, what a privilege. In verse 38, Jesus asks Peter, James and John to continue further with Him and He asks them to pray. The next verse then says, “and Jesus went FURTHER STILL.” That last verse has captured my heart and my attention for the past few weeks. What an amazing opportunity for the disciples to go with Jesus to the garden to pray, and then for Peter, James and John to be asked to go further with Jesus. But I love how it says that Jesus went further still.

Over a dozen students go "Further Still" as they follow the Lord by being baptized!

I have been in discussion with Jesus about how He wants ME, to go “further still”. What does that look like? What do I need to let go of? Or maybe even harder, whom do I need to let go of to go further still? What fears or lies am I still clinging to that are keeping me outside the garden? I don’t know. But I’m listening, I’m praying, and I’m desiring to go “further still.” How about you? Are you content where you are?
