Two Gardens, Worlds Apart

D.A. Carson on the difference between the Garden of Eden and the Garden of Gethsemane:

“In the first garden “Not your will but mine” change Paradise to desert and brought man from Eden to Gethsemane. Now “Not my will but yours” brings anguish to the man who prays it but transforms the desert into the kingdom and brings man from Gethsemane to the gates of glory.”
