"And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground." - Luke 22 V44

"Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God." - 1 Peter 4 V1, 2

The Lord Jesus Christ was in great agony before He went to the cross. Every suffering He endured was real and caused the same pain as it would have caused you and me. There was one greater pain Lord Jesus had to endure and it was the pain of separation from the Father. He was crushed for our sins as the wrath of God was poured on Him and all this was in accordance to the will of the Father. Let us arm ourselves with the same mind as Christ and live the rest of our lives for the will of our God. Amen.

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
