Matthew 26:39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”
Jesus prayed in the garden tonight.
How scared He must have been as He prayed to God. He cried. He yelled. He asked for the cup to be removed. I can’t imagine the terror He had in His human heart in that moment. My own heart aches for Him now just thinking about it.
He paid it all for us, a world of lowly sinners who don’t deserve any of it.
We continue to sin in this world. We continue to be greedy. We continue to covet.
We continue to put ourselves first before Him at all times.
When do we stop and ask ourselves, “Do I know what He did for me?”
“Do I know what He did for all of us?”
I heard on the radio this morning that the Easter egg actually represents Christ. The egg itself is life and when cracked, it represents the opening of the tomb and the resurrection of Christ.
I’d like to think we are all cracked eggs. Cracked eggs who got to have a second chance because Jesus followed through on His final act of obedience. Cracked eggs who can be forgiven because He got up, walked out of that garden and died on the cross for our sins.
Cracked eggs who will never be as perfect as He was, but with the promise that we can be whole again once more.
Thank you Jesus for getting up. Thank you for walking out of that garden.Thank you for paying it all for us.
We don’t deserve any of it. We can only try and live as you asked us to.
A bunch of cracked eggs, living only for You.
Appreciating what you did for us, every single second of every single day.
