The Cup of Redemption
“And when He had taken the cup, and giving thanks, He gave it
to them; and they all drank from it.
And He said to them, “This is My blood of the covenant, which
is poured out for many.” Mark 14:23,24
"And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten and
said, 'This cup which is poured out for you; do this in remembrance
of Me.'” Luke 22:20
Jesus drinks the cup of sorrow as He dies on the cross and gives to us:
the cup of blessing,
the cup of redemption,
the cup of the New Covenant,
the cup of Life.
Papa, When I consider the two cups and how there would be no cup
of redemption if Jesus had not willingly drunk from the cup of sorrow,
I stand amazed and speechless by your love for me.
