Calvary are also holy ground. Let us approach with godly fear, not with vain curiosity ; and may the good Spirit of God, the glorifier of Jesus, take these sacred things, respect-ing his " agony and bloody sweat, his cross and passion," and so show them to us as that we may repent, believe, and rejoice. We ought to remember, that the whole life of Christ was a life of sufi'ering. He was " a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief." For our sakes he became poor, and. endured the contradiction of sinners against himself. But we must now confine our meditations to his last sufferings in the garden, during his trial, and at Golgotha. Our blessed Lord having " loved his own which were in the world, loved them to the end ;" and gave a most affecting proof of it, by washing their feet, celebrating the Passover with them, instituting the sacred Supper, and by his pathetic discourse and affectionate prayers. He then went forth out of the city, accompanied by all the apostles, except Judas, who was preparing to betray him, to a garden where he used to retire, and had spent many nights in devotion. At the entrance of this, he left eight of the disciples, taking Peter, James, and Jolm to a separate place, where they were spec-tators of his distress.
