Did Jesus really have negative feelings?

Matthew 26:36-38: “Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane,… and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then he said to them, ‘My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.’”

Sometimes we think that we if we were really spiritual we wouldn’t be affected by stress. But look at Jesus.

  • What feelings do we see that He had in these verses?
  • What does that say to you?
  • Jesus was willing to express His feelings to those close to Him. Do you have anyone with whom you can share your struggles?

You can learn more about this in Chapter Six in All Stressed Up and Everywhere to Go.
