The humanity of Jesus Christ is displayed in stark reality in the the Garden of Gethsemene. He feels the weight of death to the point of sweating blood, and yet He trusts God in this darkness. Christ faces the cross with full assurance of faith in His Father, and three days later, as He promised, God raises His Son from death on a cross to redeem all of humanity!
How often do we pray for God to let our cup of suffering pass, when we really need to pray for our hearts to be aligned with His will. We have the hope and saving power of Christ’s resurrection in our hearts. We can trust God’s divine will is good because of Jesus Christ.
