In difficult times , I’ve been deeply encouraged when I remember the example our Way-shower, Christ Jesus, gave us when he faced the supreme challenge of his ministry as his crucifixion approached. After his agony in the garden of Gethsemane, and his prayer, “O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me” ( Matthew 26:39 ), Jesus’ meek acceptance of what he needed to do and his demeanor during the last supper is hugely significant.
