    Precept #3 “Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.” (John 5:19)             In John Chapter 17, Jesus is praying to the Father. He said concerning His disciples and all that come after them, “They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” (Joh 17:16) We do not belong to the world, “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (1Co 6:20)…

    Day 33: Drink His Cup-Part 1

    Precept #4 “Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?” (John 18:11)             One of the most painful scenes in the Bible is unfolding. The time for the sacrifice has come. Within only a matter of hours the Son of God must die. This is where we will begin, “And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.” (Mar 14:34) Walking about a stone’s throw away, Jesus falls to the ground all alone, crying out to His Father. “And he said, Abba, Father, all things are…

    Day 34: Drink His Cup-Part 2

    Precept #4 “Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?” (John 18:11) “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;” (2 Timothy 1:7-8)             “And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. Then saith he unto…

    Precept #5 “For he taught his disciples, and said unto them, The Son of man is delivered into the hands of men,  and they shall kill him; and after that he is killed, he shall rise the third day.” (Mark 9:31) “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13) “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.” (John 15:15)              Jesus freely gave His life for us. He suffered the…
