The Nevertheless Of Christ


Presentation1

For those time when your love for Christ grows weak,

“Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.” (Luke 22:42b)

Alone in the garden, our Lord prayed the most agonizingly prayer, “Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from me.” He knew the pain that awaited Him: The torturous whipping that would leave Him mangled beyond recognition. The agony of His broken, naked body cruelly nailed to the cross. Worse of all, He knew the darkening terror of separation from the Father was coming. Then He remembered why… my sinfulness. It was for me; wretched me. He who knew no sin would soon experience the full wrath and fury of God because of my depraved indifference, my bleakest deeds, my lying tongue, my prideful arrogance, my unfaithfulness. “Nevertheless…” Praise God! Jesus said, “Nevertheless.”

For the whole story read Luke 22:39-53
