What He has Done

This past sunday Spence talked briefly about the time when Jesus wept drops of blood in the garden of Gethsemane. We had an interesting discussion about that once with a fellow in Papua New Guinea. He said it always bothered him that people assumed that Jesus cried out to His father because he was afraid and weak. Ken suggested that was not the case at all, but the thing he was overwhelmed with was that he would soon be cut off from His Father and was already feeling the weight of the sin of the world.
On Sunday it struck me again what Jesus did - His incredible love for us - His incredible mercy. Perhaps part of the reason every knee will someday bow will be because we will all finally grasp the reality of what he has done for us.
