“But Jesus said to them, ‘Are you able to drink the cup that I drink?’” (Mark 10:38).

Who would have imagined that the idea of drinking from a cup could be fraught with so much meaning; that it so metaphorically captures the idea of suffering and death that our Lord would even pray that this cup might pass from Him (Mt.26:39). It is a cup of self-sacrifice depicting suffering and death for the cause of Christ by every believer. With this understanding the question begs from us even more thoughtful contemplation—“Are you able to drink the cup?” What’s easy to profess is more challenging to swallow.
