"The agony in Gethsemane is the agony of the Son of God in fulfilling His destiny as the Saviour of the world. The veil is drawn aside to reveal all it cost Him to make it possible for us to become sons of God.
"His agony is the basis of the simplicity of our salvation.
"The Cross of Christ is a triumph for the Son of Man. It was not only a sign that Our Lord had triumphed, but that He had triumphed to save the human race.
"Every human being can get through into the presence of God now because of what the Son of Man went through."
- Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, April 5th entry
