Quote of the Day

As we watch Jesus pray in agony in Gethsemane, He has every right to turn His tearful eyes towards you and shout, "This is your cup.  You're responsible for this!  It's your sin!  You drink it."
This cup should be rightfully thrust into my hand and yours.  Instead, Jesus freely takes it that from the cross He can look down on you and me, whisper our names and say, "I drain this cup  for you - for you have lived in defiance of me, who have hated me, who have opposed me.  I drink it all...for you."
- C.J. Mahaney
