We are entering the time of year when people are thinking a lot about gardening. Considering what they need to do to get ready for the season to come. Did you know that a focal point of the Easter account takes place in a garden? It was in the garden of Gethsemane where Jesus was considering what was to come in relation to the unfathomable hardship He was about to face. Do you know what would have been on the forefront of His mind? It was not that He was soon to be arrested, it was not that his disciples were about to desert Him, it was not the torment that he would face leading up to going to the cross or even physical pain he would face on the cross. It was the fact that He would become sin for us in order to provide a way that we could get right with God. 2 Corinthians 5:21 reads, “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
