From Jesus: I Understand

From Jesus: I Understand

I understand the trying of men’s hearts–the despair, the discouragement, the desperation.

I understand the pain of leaving loved ones, for first I had to leave My Father to go to Earth, and then I had to leave those that I loved so dearly on Earth to return to My Father.

I understand what it’s like to feel betrayed, for one whom I had befriended [Judas] betrayed Me with a kiss.

I understand fear of what lies ahead, and so I prayed, “Father, let this cup pass from Me!”

I understand what it’s like to feel ridiculed and abused, for I was ridiculed and abused.

I understand pain, for I felt excruciating pain as the nails pierced My hands and My feet.

I understand what it’s like to feel abandoned, for I felt abandoned by those I loved, who also loved Me. For a moment I thought that even My Father had abandoned Me.

Though My Father did not let that cup pass from Me, though one who I had loved betrayed Me, though I saw My loved ones flee from Me in time of trouble, though I was beaten and spat upon, though the nails pierced My hands and feet, though I felt My Father had abandoned Me, though I had to die an agonizing death, though it looked like a great defeat, it all brought about a great victory and great salvation–a great resurrection that changed the course of history and all eternity!

I died to save you, but I went through all the rest to understand you better.
