A Promise For You From Bible Promises:
Topic: A Troubled Night [13/04/2017]
And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. Luke 22:44. Read: Mk 14:32-36
It was a night different from other nights. Other nights, He separated Himself to commune with His Father in prayer. But the eve before His crucifixion was an agonizing one. A night in which His soul was sorrowful unto death. A night in which He bore the sin of the whole world upon His shoulder. A night His human side surfaced and wished the Lord took away the cup of death from Him, not His Will but God’s will be done. A night He knew that His Father will leave Him not permanently but momentarily, but that moment came with excruciating pain. A night He was between the options of either going to the cross or denying it. But for our Salvation, He endured the humiliation from sinners whom He came to die for. They spat on Him, mocked Him and ridiculed Him. Oh, what a night!
He knew His Father would leave Him at the moment He bore my sin and yours upon Himself because God cannot behold iniquity (not even upon His only begotten Son) Hab 1:13, He took along His intimate human friends, but they disappointed Him when they could not watch with Him for an hour. What a troubled night for my Saviour!
