Jesus was alone so that we would never have to be alone again. When He faced the cross and the horrific events leading up to the cross, Jesus was mostly deserted. His friends fled and the same people that chanted “Hosanna!” just a few days before were now humiliating Him as He went to the cross. He prayed in the garden alone. He faced His accusers alone. He took that horrific beating alone. He went to the cross alone. He was laid in His tomb alone.
But, we all know that wasn’t the end of the story. Jesus bore all of that suffering and loneliness so that we would never have to be lonely again. Jesus wanted to have a relationship with you so badly that He welcomed all of those lonely and hurtful moments so that He could.
