Looking towards the cross

Matthew 26:36/46

Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to his disciples: Sit here, while I go there and pray. And taking Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be greatly saddened and distressed. Then Jesus said to them: My soul is very sad, even to death; stay here, and watch with me. Going a little forward, he fell on his face, praying and saying: My father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; but not as I want, but as you want. Then he came to his disciples and found them sleeping, and he said to Peter, "So you couldn't watch with me one hour?" Watch and pray, so that you do not enter into temptation; The spirit is truly willing, but the flesh is weak. He went again, and prayed a second time, saying: My father, if this cup cannot pass from me without my drinking it, your will be done. He came again and found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy with sleep. And leaving them, he went away again, and prayed a third time, saying the same words; Then he came to his disciples and said to them: Go to sleep and rest. Behold, the hour has come, and the Son of Man is delivered into the hands of sinners. Get up, come on; See, he who betrays me is approaching.

We see that in the midst of the difficult situation of our Lord Jesus Christ, he never left his disciples alone. Knowing in His destiny, His plan, His assignment from the father.

Let's take the time to just look... That allows us to stay looking at the cross, our Lord Jesus Christ through his sacrifice allowed us to receive many benefits for his dedication.

One of those sacrifices was our salvation

Psalm 62:1

Only in God does my soul find rest; from him comes my salvation

1. Peace

I leave you peace; I give you my peace. I don't give it to you like the world. do not be distressed or dismayed.

John 14:27

2. Restoration

But I will bring healing to you, and I will heal your wounds, says the Lord; for they called you rejected, saying, This is Zion, which no one remembers.

Jeremiah 30:17

3. Liberation

Now the lord is Spirit; and, where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

2 Corinthians 3:17 4. He is your Lawyer Right now I have a witness in heaven, up above is my lawyer. My intercessor is my friend and before God I burst into tears so that he may intercede before God on my behalf, like someone appealing for his friend. Job 16:19-21

We can realize that the word describes many other things that are beneficial when we remain looking at the cross and the sacrifice that Christ made. We only mention a few and we wish that each of these words can restore your life, bring you peace and above all things know To our giver of life, our beloved Jesus Christ, many blessings.
