Easter 2021

March 31, 2021

"And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground." (Luke 22:44)

Those in the racing industry are no strangers to hard work and heartache.

But the blood, sweat and tears of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane reflect a profound depth of anguish that few experience.

In a sense, heaven and earth are in the balance as Jesus prays "take this cup from me" and yet rises determined to face the destiny that lays before him - to take upon his shoulders the weight of the sins of the whole world, and to bear in his body and soul the full judgement for those sins - so that we might be spared.

He willingly surrendered his life in sacrifice, not just for his friends, but for you and me, and even those who would mock him and spit in his face.

A greater demonstration of love there has never been.

No wonder, then, that the scriptures urge us - in the midst of our own pain, turmoil and failings - to turn to Jesus and so find grace and mercy from the one who truly understands our struggles.

May the love of Christ bring you peace this Easter.
