The Agonizing Prayer of Gethsemane

Agonizing Prayer by Jerry Bridges at Tabletalk Magazine

“My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will” (Matt. 26:39).

Find out why it was necessary for Jesus to drink the cup of God's wrath for us and why today is "Good Friday" for those of faith. Here is an excerpt:
We read the story of Gethsemane and the crucifixion so often that it has a tendency to become commonplace. If this is true of us, may we repent. And may we never again read Jesus’ prayer of anguish without reminding ourselves that it was God’s wrath against our sin that caused Him such unimaginable agony.
