When Christ went into the Garden of Gethsemane he asked his friends to stay close to him.  He was disappointed--they fell asleep.  Then Christ asked his father to take away "this cup" and let it pass from him.  He didn't want to drink it.  What was "this cup"? 

"The Cup" he spoke of was full of the sins of the world.  That cup was full of my sin and yours. 

Finally, Christ said, "OK, I'll do it.  I won't do what I want, I'll do what my father wants."  THIS IS THE VOICE OF HOPE!
