“I shall lift up the cup of salvation and call upon the name of the lord” (Psalm 116:13). 

Jesus asked his disciples, “Are you able to drink the cup I am about to drink?”  In the Garden of Gethsemane, he prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me.”  The cup of salvation is something significant.  The cup contains responsibility, commitment, sacrifice, and death.  Lifting this cup is no light-hearted toast.
