God in the Garden
Before Jesus was betrayed, He went to a garden called Gethsemane to pray. Even though He was fully God, His humanity was on full display as He asked for the company of His closest friends to join Him. While He prayed, He was filled with grief and sorrow.
The time had come for Christ to bear the cup—He, the sinless One, would take upon Himself the sins of this world and the wrath of the Father. He accepted this cup from the hands of the Father, just as we too must endure suffering for the glory of God.
