Wallis: no other way

Friday, May 3, 2024
    Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.”
    Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”
    —Matthew 26:38-39 (NIV)
    We have no reason or right to choose another way than the way God chose in Jesus Christ. The cross is both the symbol of our salvation and the pattern of our lives.
    ... Jim Wallis (b. 1948), The Call to Conversion, Harper & Row, 1981, p. 87 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 26:38-39,42; Luke 22:42; John 12:27; 14:5-6; Acts 2:36-39; 17:30-31; Rom. 5:15-18; Phil. 2:5-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You alone are our Savior.
