Preaching the Gospel, Preparing a People
The Son of God depicts the utmost of this humility in the garden, as drops of blood pour forth from His flesh as He earnestly requests the cup be taken from Him, yet he says, "not my will be done, but thine." The epitome of humility overcoming anxiety; in the face of certain martyrdom, turning Himself to the complete care of His Heavenly Father's plan (yes, His very own murder), yields to the task set before him (for He laid down His life, see: Jhn.. 10:14-18), of which we are told was a joy, though He despised the cross, enduring its shame (see: Heb 12:2). Indeed, may it never be required of any of His faithful to suffer in such like manner (though such a one would be blessed with great reward, see: Matt 5:10-12), but if it be the will of our Heavenly father, the faith OF Christ in us shall bring the same joy in that moment of ultimate anxiety. Christ came to earth with full knowledge of the plan. Imagine the anxiety of setting out on such an endeavor, yet the wisdom of Solomon (of Christ really), "sow your seed...", this Christ did. Having sown, he also reaped and reaps still as will we, who labor in like manor, sowing seeds of truth, unlike the enemy who sows darnel.
