Luke 22:44

Strong crying and tears affected his path on earth. It was never more so than at this point, as his horror at the looming cross came face to face with his delight in doing his Father’s will. The physical pain would be awful but in addition the Holy One was to be made an offering for sin.

What wrestling in prayer he knew that night in the Garden.
