This is one of the tougher weeks in the church year for me personally... Realizing what Christ endured for our benefit, is just so hard to comprehend, but he was half God and only half man, but sweating blood is a testament it wasn't his most favorite thing...
Just a note of Gratitude for all His suffering and willingness to come pay our debt for our salvation.
Thank you, Jesus!

Jesus was all God and all man or else His sacrifice wouldn't have met the the payment sin demanded. If he was only half we'd only be half saved which means not saved at all. Only God could have accomplished this but it was essential for our salvation and shows our complete inability to earn salvation through good behavior.
