All Flesh is like Grass

After spending a few hours at the Abbot of Gethsemane, i was struck with the fraility of humanity. We try so hard to follow Christ and “do good,” yet despite our best efforts, we don’t seem to measure up. Near the end of the day we went on a hike and saw a statue representing the disciples in the garden of Gethsemane: they were asleep. That seems to epitomize our spiritual lives, yet, Christ calls us “to awake o sleeper, and Christ will shine on you!” That is the glorious hope of the Gospel; Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit, justifies us and begins the work of sanctification in us. It was fitting that after seeing the statue of the sleeping disciples, just “a stones throw away” we saw the most human, human who had ever lived, Jesus Christ. He was on His knees for them, for you, for me. Thank God for Easter and the empty tomb! We can share in the life of Christ today.
