"there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him"

"And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,

Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground." Luke 22:41-44 

Our Savior experienced all of this so that we could repent of our sins, and return to the presence of our Father in Heaven again.  

May we ever turn to him in all things, for he is our Redeemer and Savior, the Creator of all things from the beginning, our advocate with the Father.  His love for us is what drove him to endure the pain he did.

And he did that so he could lift our burdens, and comfort us in our trials.  The only perfect man who took upon him our pains and sins.  Just as he himself was strengthened, he now strengthens us.   

He has ransomed us forever.  May we ever be grateful for that.
