In the agony in the garden, Christ prayed
according to the prompting of his sense nature, to teach us three things:
First, that He had a true human nature with all its natural inclinations. Second, that it is lawful for man to will,
according to his natural inclination, a thing which God does not will. Third, that there is nothing wrong in our
shrinking from what is naturally grievous, so long as we bring our emotion into line
with the divine will.
