What must it have been like
In that garden, with Jesus, long long ago.
When he cried out to His Father,
The One who loves Him so.
He cried,”Father, take this cup from me.”
“Yet not as I will, but your will be done.”
But our God could not change his plans;
He had to sacrifice His Son.
Jesus disciples lay there sleeping
Not realizing what was ahead.
They had no idea
That soon, their beloved Savior would be dead.
Suddenly, a crowd showed up with Judas,
Armed with clubs and swords.
Judas stepped out in front of them all
And kissed Jesus, the one he called Lord.
Jesus disciples were terrified,
They deserted Him and fled.
The fear that overwhelmed them there
Robbed their memories of all that He had said.
Then Peter, his Rock, denied Him three times,
When all he had wanted was to be near.
The rest of Jesus followers had abandoned Him,
Paralyzed by their fear.
And still, our Savior died for them;
His love, the reason that He came.
He paid the price for ALL our sins;
A Gift given, so this world would never be the same.
And death, it could not hold Him.
He conquered death, He rose up from that grave!
He didn’t come to teach this world a lesson nor to condemn it.
He came to save!
He came to save all those who seek Him;
The ones who hear His voice, His call.
He came to offer us Salvation;
For that, He gave His life, He gave his all.
So the question is, do you believe?
Have you come to God’s own Son?
Have you bowed down on bended knees
And cried,”God,your will be done!”?
Do you need a Savior To wipe away your sins?
Do you need a Promise for eternal life,
The Way to Heaven, the Only Way to enter in?
Then come to Jesus! He’s not even a single breath away.
Cry out to Jesus, He WILL come in.
He is The God Who Stays.
