Our beginning was in the garden where our father Adam lost himself and the whole human race. We betrayed the fellowship and friendship offered by God. The philosophers say that this character flaw can be cured by knowledge. Yet thousands of years later in a garden God offers fellowship again to humans who for ignorance of their danger and universal in their desertion leave God alone. Choosing slumber as their only comfort. In this garden of agony the friends slumber while the enemies are wakeful. Surely Jesus will be in agony until all his friends are awakened and all His enemies are put to rest. Even in His agony this was the love He showed His friends. While they slept even in the nothingness before their birth and in their sins after their birth; Christ wrought their salvation and not theirs alone but all righteous who are His friends.
From here He walked to wounds and death. Alone for friends unworthy to be called such. Yet in healing Himself He healed His friends. I am disappointed by my friend but how much more have I slept during my best friend's desire to fellowship in His agony. There is ample grace for all sins.
Christ's enemies did not cease to persecute Him until He lay in the grave. Nothing has changed. His enemies today will do the same to Christ in you. He did not bring peace to this world but emnity. The garden with all its agony must die. Only after the resurrection will we be allowed to investigate these wounds as Christ displayed in type. Then we will know true friendship and understand what a friend we have in Jesus.
I share this with you because I see so little confidence or understanding of this relationship in your comments. No fears can be justified or hopes disappoint. Our powerful friend has all means and manners of love for us. He shed tears, blood, pain, and life to assure our well being. Now that's a friend you can take from the garden to the grave. Shalom.
