The “Garden of Agony” is my phrase for the night, Maunday Thursday, that Jesus and three of the disciples spent in the Garden of Gethsemane. Jesus wanted a place to be with His Father and asked that his companions be with Him in prayer. They all fell asleep.
His agony was so great that he sweated blood. He asked His Father that this cup passes from Him, but it did not. His arrest, trials, humiliation, and torture finally led to His crucifixion.
We have had our own nights of Gethsemane if we have lived a long life. It becomes that terrifying and agonizing time when we see what is inevitable before us. We have a choice. Do we find a way out? Or do we proceed and face certain pain, suffering, and death? Do we have companions that stay with us until the end? And, ultimately, no matter what happens, do we have a God that we can rely on and put our trust in?
