This 'n' That: Good Friday Edition

We can never, we will never, comprehend the experience of Christ in the Garden of Gethsemane just hours before His arrest, trial and death. We can never, and will never know the immensity of experiencing, in just a few brief hours, the eternal wrath of God for every sinner who would ever believe on Him. We can never, and will never know the true weight of our own sin, let alone the weight of the sins of a countless number. But Christ knows.

Indeed, it is precisely because Christ knew and experienced these things that those who believe upon Him never will know them. The suffering and the sacrifice of our Lord is incomprehensible. Perhaps one day, when we meet Him face to face and peer at His nail-pierced hands and feet, we will begin to fully understand. I suspect, however, that upon seeing those precious scars, we will all fall at His feet in humble and gracious adoration for the Lamb Who was slain on our behalf.

  • The Agony of the Cup:
