The Sorrowful Soul of the Savior
I preached a solemn but joy-filled sermon this morning on the agony of Jesus in Gethsemane (you can listen here). I felt something of the weight, saw something of the horror, tasted something of the sting, heard something of the pain, and sensed something of the meaning of it all. It was for me and my sin that the Savior was greatly distressed so much that He wanted to push the cup away from Him. It was for me and my sin that He embraced the cup, submitted to His Father, and accomplished His work. What a Savior!
