Our Savior experienced everything we do, yet he did not allow the burdens of the world to crush him. He fully understood--firsthand--our frailty and fears. Yet he walked in perfect rest and peace.
He fully understood that the fate he chose for himself [at his first coming] was going to be horrific (Luke 9:22-26). But he chose to endure it for our sakes, for the glory, victory, and LIFE that would follow.
He knew his agony would overcome evil and death. He embraced the pain and suffering of crucifixion with a mind-boggling peace and joy, thinking of others to the last moment (Father forgive them....).
Jesus passed his victory to his followers when he said, "My peace I give thee...," when he called us to himself, saying, "Come unto me all ye that labor...Learn of me...and I will give you rest."
