Today, we’ll take a look at what Jesus went through in the climax of His depression while He prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane. And we’ll see how He overcame His severe depression to go on to the cross in order to die and to redeem us from our sins. We’ll see how the God of Joy, became the Man of Sorrows so that people who have sorrow and depression, can now have His joy.
