We were blessed to have Bruce Allen in our home a couple of weeks ago. He came to spend a few days "just to take a break" from his busy traveling schedule.
We could very well run long again today, but I need to connect all of the dots for you as we wrap up this discussion on the cup, so let’s get started. Let me cover some of the same ground that I did last week in order for you to see the connection.
It’s hard for me to believe that I’ve been writing on this 23rd Psalm adventure for a solid year by now. And that doesn’t count a couple of short breaks we’ve taken just to take a breather. This truly has become a revelation as much for me as it has for those of you who’ve stayed with it during this time. I sit down to write and things just begin to flow in my spirit. Sometimes it’s hard to simply stop. I just keep writing, and ultimately have to break it up into multiple Coffee Breaks in order to keep things down to a readable limit, practically speaking.
Let’s finish where we left off last week in talking about Jesus’ life as an example of the cup running over, and then explore the covenant that comes with the cup as it relates to what Jesus has done on our behalf and what He has made available to us.
