it was love
Then He said to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me." Matthew 26:38
i probably would have fallen asleep ... like the disciples did ... instead of keeping the Lord company during that long night ... before His date with an event that changed the world - the crucifixion of a Righteous Man ... the Son of God ...
He could have decided that we weren't worth it ... but love kept Him on that lonesome road to the cross ... and i will be eternally greatful!
"If you were ever tempted to doubt God's love for you, even for a moment, then take a long, hard look at the Cross. Nails did not hold Jesus to that cross. His love did." Greg Laurie, For Every Season
