CQOD: 04/18/06 -- Brooks: what we cost Him
Christian Quotation of the DayApril 18, 2006
And he withdrew from them about a stone's throw, and knelt down and prayed, saying, "Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done." And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly; and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
-- Luke 22:41-44 (ESV)
As Christ drew near to death, He Himself trembled. It was an experience of all His creation, but He had never felt it. To His humanity, His assumed flesh, it seemed terrible—Gethsemane bears witness how terrible it seemed; but He passed into it for love of us.
... Phillips Brooks (1835-1893)
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, you purchsed life for me at such a price!
