Remember that portion of Scripture in Luke 22:42 where Jesus is praying in the Garden of Gethsemane? And Jesus first request was for God to , "take this cup of suffering from me."
To put it more literally, Jesus asks, "Father, if you are willing, take this cup away from me."
Jesus knew what pain and suffering was ahead for Him on that cross. And since He was human but yet God He asked if He couldn't be spared. Could I maybe get out of this?
I've been thinking about that Scripture all this week and too was asking God is there anyway I can get out of this hip replacement surgery? The answer is a big , NO! I've been in more pain this week than any other time. Maybe I shouldn't have asked.
But being a human like my Savior I too wanted a way out if possible.
Thank you , Jesus for being to die for my sins and everyone else's. What a Savior!!!
