"never the less, not My will, but Thy will be done"
« on: June 11, 2010, 07:15:31 PM »
Jesus prayed such and a thorn prick brought forth a drop of blood.  Who could have known that this seemingly insignificant act would give birth to a crimson river that would run so deep that it's cleansing power would be more that sufficient to save every soul ever born?  From first to last, throughout the ages, from this day until the end of time, still, yet, this isn't  the most miraculous part of the story.  The most miracoulous part is that from that day until this, and for all the days yet to be, that crimson river has not/will not decrease it's depth by one single drop.

The resurrection surely deserves joyous procolamation, but let us not forget that had it not been for the sacrifice, there would be no salvation.  The resurrection was His victory over death, thus proclaiming that we too could have eternal life.  Yet, it was the prick of the thorn upon His brow, the wounds He suffered to His hands, His side and His feet, and the death He willingly chose that paid the price for our sins and allowed us to become worthy to be called the children of God.  Were it not for the sacrifice, the resurrection could not have come to pass.  Jesus said it Himself:  "Greater love hath no man than that He would give His life for His brother."  And that is just what He did.

So, sing joyously of the resurrection and it's promise of eternal life, but never, never, ever forget the prick of the thorn, for it was on Calvary's cross where our Lord, the Son of Man paid the price.

I was taught that it was the stress of such a fervent prayer to the Father which burst the small capillaries in His forehead, and that is what caused the blood to flow.....

but in any event, the words at the end of His prayer are life lesson to us all IMO. ::nodding::

 WATER - by nature, water always seeks the lowest place, and from the lowest place is lifted up into the highest to be shed abroad as rain to nourish the earth...may we all serve the Lord in humility as water.

Sorry water, I meant to get back to this yesterday and just plain forgot.......sigh...........I am assuming that what you were taught was referring to when Jesus was in the Garden praying.........and I have heard the same thing.  In my post however, while I quoted His acceptance of God's will, it was only to set up what occured during His sacrifice.  That He willingly chose to die for us.  The prick of the thorn referrs to the crown of thorns that the Roman soldiers forced onto His head and the thorns surely pricked His brow bringing forth a drop of blood.  I guess you understand this, just wanted to be clear myself.  Thanks for your consideration.
