Fragment: Christ Meeting Every Circumstance

IT is most striking to see how Christ met, according to divine perfectness, every circumstance He was in. They only drew out the perfectness. He felt them all, was governed by none, but met them, always Himself. This, which was always true, was wonderfully shown in Gethsemane. He prays with the fullest sense of what was coming upon Him -the cup He had to drink- turns and warns His disciples, and gently rebukes and excuses Peter as if, walking in Galilee, the flesh was weak, and then returns into yet deeper agony with His Father. Grace suited Him with Peter in the presence of God; and He was grace with Peter-in agony at the thought of the cup.
