On Easter, we celebrate Jesus doing the unexpected, the unbelievable, the miraculous – rising from the dead. So many witnesses, including the disciples, had seen Jesus arrested, publicly beaten, and paraded through the streets up to Golgotha. They saw Him nailed onto the wooden cross and lifted up to hang there between criminals. They saw Him give up His spirit, take His last breath, and die.
And with it, they saw their hope lost.
This is a depiction of Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane.
It’s a picture of complete surrender.
The surrendering of our will to our heavenly Father’s can be agonizing at times. That’s what I love about this image. Jesus didn’t make it look easy. In fact, Scripture tells us He experienced such anguish in the garden, such overwhelming sorrow, that His sweat became like drops of blood.
