Scripture: Matthew 26:36-46
For the Son of God it is now "crunch time." It's been a week that has been full of last things, the last visit to the temple, the last sermon, the last supper. Now He will pray before He goes to the cross. For Jesus, crunch time will take place, not in a gym, but in a garden. When Jesus entered the garden He knew He would be arrested, He knew it was the beginning of the end.
