I Will Drink This Cup

This morning I brought a message titled “I Will Drink This Cup” at Shiloh, Kalona, Iowa.

Our founder, John Stevens, taught us that a walk with God is like signing a blank check. He experienced the devastation of God dealing with his reluctance and withdrawal from the responsibility of apostleship and what God was asking him to do. John Stevens came to the point where he drank the cup of the Lord and no longer counted the cost.

In the Garden of Gethsemane, Christ realized the great weight of responsibility that rested upon Him for the salvation of humanity. To drink the cup of the Lord, we also embrace the responsibility of completing all that the Lord requires of us.

In this message, I describe how the Lord has been working this same commitment in me. Do not be sympathetic with me, but be in prayer that I can sign the blank check that God is asking of me so that I may drink the cup of the Lord.
