Drinking the Cup
Scripture: John 18:11 Jesus commanded Peter, “Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?”
Observation: The Father has each given us a cup, a purpose in this life. It will not be a cup like Jesus, even though some might be put to death for our faith. The cup will be full of sharing the gospel in some way, to help bring others to the Father in Jesus name. We are called to spread the gospel, to love God with all of our heart, mind and soul and to love others as ourselves. Each one of our cups will contain these ingredients.
Application: To realize I’m not here for myself, I’m here to fulfill the person my Father has given me. Pray each day for direction and freely give myself to the task the Gad has set before me.
Prayer: Good Morning Father may I always thirst for what is in the cup you gave me. May I never become content just taking sips but that I would desire to be full of your will.
