Then Jesus brought them into an olive grove called Gethsemane, and he said, "Sit here while I go on ahead to pray."…He went on a little farther and fell face down on the ground, praying, "My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will, not mine." Matthew 26:36-39 NLT
Learning from Christ's passion The Garden of Gethsemane, where those troublesome thoughts of death assailed Him. At Jesus' trial - a shabby excuse for justice if ever there was one - He bore the beating and badgering without speaking a word. He was carrying our sins with Him to the Cross. At the Cross we can only fall at His feet to worship. At each point of this journey we have much to learn from our Saviour. We can learn to pray when tempted and to endure suffering with patience. And Christ teaches us to rise in newness of life, to live in a way that honours Him, and ultimately to join Him in glory.
