prayer diary Wednesday 4 March 2015 (Day of Discipline and Self-denial)

‘Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink?’ They said to him, ‘We are able.’ He said to them, ‘You will indeed drink my cup.' 
Matthew 20. 22,23

Reflection:
Christ offers his cup of suffering to all who would be his disciple. Those who accept it must deny themselves and take up their cross. For some this means persecution or even a martyr's crown; but for all it means being faithful even unto death.
