" Father!!! FATHER!!!! I do not want to do this, “Jesus Cried out in Anguish.
"I do not want to die!! I want to live!!!"
Knowing even at that moment, Soldiers were on their way to arrest him a million thoughts raced through his mind...
And those thoughts...were OUR FACES!!!

 He gets up... in the point of desperation.... ”I need my three strongest Disciples to pray with me!!"
(We have all been there...just hearing someone else praying over our situation builds faith)
But they were asleep.... (We have been there too, NEEDING desperately someone to care about what we are going through as much as we do)
He goes back to the rock....bows his head...
The tears are falling...his hands tremble... There is a battle in the mind between Jesus the man and Jesus the Christ!!
I can almost hear them shouting over one another....
"Father, Let this cup pass from me" cries the man
"NONE THE LESS, YOUR WILL BE DONE!!” Counters the Christ
"I DO NOT WANT TO DIE FOR RICKY RAY ROBERTSON!!! Look at how many times he is going to Fail You Father!!"
Cries the man.
"NONE THE LESS, YOUR WILL BE DONE!!" Counters the Christ once again
The man is now in such distress that he is sweating great drops of blood.
"Father, Let this cup pass from me!! Let RickyRay Robertson be accountable for his own sin!! Look... See how he walks away from you during his life" How he walks away from the calling on his life to persue a life of Crime , drugs and all that goes with it?? LET THIS CUP PASS FROM ME!!! Let RickyRay Robertson and all of the rest of them that will deny you time and time again face their own Cross!!!"
Jesus the Christ is weary... tired, the physical body that houses him trembles like flax in an Earthquake....
Suddenly, he remembers that MOSES... a man... FLESH, came to bring the LAW...
But that his own sole purpose was to bring GRACE and TRUTH...
He remembers that HE is the Bridge between Fallen man and THE Eternal God...
He rises up... lifts his head...and in a shout of VICTORY PROCLAIMS....
"NONE THE LESS!!! NOT MY WILL, BUT YOURS BE DONE!!!!!!!"
His Moment of decision... was made with you and me in mind...
After that brief moment, which must have seemed like hours.... Jesus Christ stepped into his Destiny...
And in doing so.... BROUGHT US INTO OURS!!!
This Easter... let us REMEMBER his Sacrifice...for what it TRULY was...and remains to be even today...
The complete Restoration of our fallen man, to HIS ETERNAL GOD.
I thank you Jesus, for seeing my face....and all of my sins.....and REMAINING ON THAT CROSS!!!
I love you so much!!!
To God be all Glory, forever
