AGONY AND SWEAT

And being in agony he prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground. Luke 22:44 (NKJV)

When we think of Maundy Thursday we usually think of the Last Supper and Jesus’ gathering His disciples for a last meal together before his violent death. But it also began the period of agony and pain that Jesus underwent in His final hours. The pain was excruciating, both physically and mentally for any man suffering such a fate.

Entering the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus separated Himself from his disciples and prayed tearfully. As Luke says, He was in mental torment and sweating profusely as would any common man facing such a horrible and known fate. But the difference was Jesus could have canceled out; he could have refused to follow the script and save Himself since he was both a mortal man and the Son of God.

But Jesus knew that He couldn’t do that. He was sent to earth to fulfill a mission--giving the gift of eternal life to mankind. And he knew that this required Him to suffer a slow and horrible death. It was the price to pay for providing salvation. And, despite his fear and trembling, he followed through on his obligation.

Realizing how he suffered and died for unworthy us, it is clear we must love and follow Him and accept the Gift of Eternal Life. If we do otherwise, we are indeed fools.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
