Christ, our dear Lord, voluntarily bore this great agony for the glory of his heavenly Father and for our benefit, so that henceforth we might have a champion over against anguish when our appearance becomes strained, our eyes dark and gloomy, our tongue speechless, and our head cannot think; then we must hold to this man who overcame this terror by absorbing it into Himself. -- Blessed Martin Luther, House Postils I:385
Yep. That's the Gospel in a nutshell. You really can't top that!
