Your Pains and Burdens lifted because of Gethsemane and the Cross

Please take a moment to read what the scriptures say about Gethsemane, and the price paid by the Savior: "And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine,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 Then came the horrors of the cross. 

Can you feel your pains, trials, and/or sins being lifted from your soul as you pray?  It is lifted because of the burden bore by the only perfect person who ever lived, our Savior, Jesus Christ.  

If the Savior only had to pay the price for one, and that one person were you, he would still atone. May we ever be grateful that our loving, kind, sensitive Savior paid an infinite price for the sins of each of us. 

My heart is pained yet full of gratitude to know that my Brother, my Savior, my Redeemer paid the price for my sins and the sins of all who will come unto him. Having overcome all, he still lives and loves each of us and beckons us to come unto him, and in him find rest.
