"He withdrew about a stone's throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed. Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done." Luke 22:41-42
Darkness and loneliness,
Grief and despair;
Shrouded in secret-ness;
How can he bear
Fellow companions asleep at their post,
Not comprehending the pain or the cost.
Jesus is praying; his love must win through.
Jesus is praying; can this be true?
For it is God’s will that he must do.
Jesus is praying “I’ll do your will.”
Sin with it’s stranglehold,
Having it’s way,
But for a moment
A season, a day.
Here in this weakness his strengths to be found.
Here, here in Jesus, God’s love must be found.
Boldness and fearfulness,
Seen hand in hand;
Strength and his weaknesses
At God’s command.
Bearing all things for all humankind;
This is the Saviour at love’s own demand
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King, Jr
