Jesus endured humanity's darkest hour & when he did, he prayed: "Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine." And then the bible says he was in so much agony that his sweat fell like drops of blood. The one attribute of Christ I'm most sold-out on is that He's been where we are. There are lots of "gods," but my God put on skin & endured the darkest hour. My darkest hour was when I got put in a psych ward in 2000. It really sucked. Do you know that I lied in a cell all night long & didn't give up because Jesus didn't give up in his darkest hour? Apart from knowing this, I would have. That's why we need to invite people to church this weekend. For anyone in their darkest hour, it's on Easter where they can know they aren't the only one; where Christ's darkest hour will be remembered; and where His rising from it...will be celebrated.
