Jesus and me
Husband and I just finished watching "The Passion of the Christ" for the first time and the first thing that struck me is that when Jesus prayed to 'have this cup taken,' God said 'no.' I have never thought of it in that way-- God's answer to one of Jesus' prayers was 'no' also. We as people, are told 'no' or 'not yet, wait' all the time, and it totally struck me that Jesus had to hear that answer too. He didn't just hear 'not yet, wait for my timing' like we usually do, he heard a flat out 'no.' Wow! How much more do I feel Jesus can relate to me, even though I knew before that He could, now I really know!
