My Title: He Alone Is Worthy

 

My Verse: 24-25

"24 And He said to them, 'This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many, 25 Truly, I say to you, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God."
 

My Response:


Jesus, who says He will be betrayed by one of the twelve is actually betrayed by all. Even me. - In verse 36 Jesus, while praying completely alone, cries out "Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will. - It is His Father's will that He should pour out HIS innocent blood for the chief priests that, instead of purifying their hearts and lives for Passover are instead plotting murder. It is His Father's will that He should pour out HIS innocent blood for the friends that would all abandon, deny or outright betray Him. - He DOESN'T want to die... BUT He wants His Father's will even more so. He KNOWS that His Father's plan is better and bigger than the next terrible day to come. He is looking forward to the coming kingdom WHERE HE IS WORTHY TO REIGN because He purchased the new covenant with HIS OWN BLOOD.


Lord, when I face the stuff of today (good & bad) please help me to remember that it's tomorrow that I should be living for. To long for that day when I celebrate YOU DRINKING THE CUP IN CELEBRATION WITH ME AND ALL THOSE THAT YOU POURED OUT YOUR BLOOD FOR. The many.
