More about this print:

If someone asked you where the greatest battle of all time took place, what would you say? Waterloo? World War 1, or 2? Vietnam?
Those were child’s play compared to the one fought in a Garden called Gethsemane.
The combatants: Jesus Christ, the Son of God in one corner, and Satan, the originator of sin, in the other.
Not a likely place to fight, is it? A garden. All of that beauty witnessed the moment of time when Jesus uttered the words that God trusted Him to say. “Not My will, but Yours be done”. It’s a wonder the trees didn’t weep!
Satan must have enjoyed hearing those words because he probably thought that Jesus fell into his deadly combination of punches.. Now he would do to the Son of God what he plotted through Judas, which was to take Jesus and crucify him at the hands of traitors, and corrupt officials.
When boxers fight and one lands a good punch, the other will usually acknowledge it with a grin or a shake of the head. Jesus did somewhat the same when He said, “This is your hour, and the power of darkness.” Little did Satan know that those words sealed his demise for eternity, and Jesus was setting him up for the knockout blow!
You see, Jesus didn’t die a martyrs death. He died a champion’s death! What He asked to be spared from was not the Crucifixion, as much as it was the outpouring of all the sin that was ever committed and all the sin that would ever be committed. He saw yours and mine, grabbed them, and then He carried them to the Cross.
That was the most gruesome part of it all for Jesus. Since God cannot look on sin, He couldn’t look at His own Son with all that sin smeared on Him. The result? Separation. Estrangement. The greatest loneliness in history. Divinity turning away from Divinity.
The nails, the torture, the blood, & the agony were all secondary to that moment when Jesus quoted Psalm 22. “My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?” The pain must have been indescribable. God ripped away from Himself the most precious relationship imaginable. His own Son.
Jesus endured the Cross, because the battle was already won in the Garden. He didn’t wait to get on the Cross, then make a decision. He made it way before. God sent an angel from Heaven, the Bible says, to strengthen Him. (Luke 22:43)
I wonder how God does that? How does He give things like peace, joy, strength & courage? How did the angel factor in bringing it? I don’t know those answers, but suffice it to say God has His way of doing what we can’t imagine, and He did it for His Son that day. That’s the confidence I have to know He can, and will, do it for me too.
The way I thought best to portray it was to have an angel holding up the arms of Christ, almost as if He would fall otherwise. I guess I got that from the time Moses had his arms raised by Aaron and Hur so that Israel could win a battle. That’s what I thought of when I decided to use that metaphor. Once I posed Him like that, I soon realized that would be the position Christ would assume on the Cross in just a matter of hours. That, my fellow believers, would win the Salvation only He could. What a Champion!
