Jesus in the garden- Orthodox Holy Week Pt. 3

Hand-Painted Icon of Jesus' Prayer in Gethsemane Garden

I’ve been up since 3:00 it is now about 3:40. The moon is still bright. I’m thinking about Christ praying in the garden of Gethsemane last night. Just a few hours ago after He celebrated Passover dinner with his remaining disciples. There He was… under the bright light from the moon He created, kneeling on the earth He had formed… beseeching God for another way to save humanity…

I finished listening to, Priestmonk Kosmas’ talk #31 where he talks about the difference between, Judas’ betrayal of Jesus and Peter’s. Both men had guilt… only one repented. Peter ran to, Jesus and asked for forgiveness. Judas threw the coins into the temple and ran away.

Do you run to, Jesus… or do you run away? Run to Him. It’s ok. He wants you to run into His loving arms.
