"re: Jesus stressing out..."
Jesus told his disciples not to be
dismayed. He told them to FEAR not when he appeared to them after the
resurrection. Jesus does not "stress out". WE DO AS HUMANS! God does
not. Even the night before the crucifixion at the last supper, when He
knew He was getting ready to die, He was telling them not to worry -
that in His father's house are many mansions and He was coming back for
them! When He sweat great drops of blood in the Garden of Gesthemane, I
would say - YES - He was under great stress, knowing what was coming.
Now, He is sitting at the Right hand of God the Father. He isn't
stressing out over anything. He is guiding and comforting the church,
His Beloved. We are not to have the spirit of fear, but of love and of
power and of a sound mind. If we keep our eyes on Him and not on the
world, we won't be stressed either.
