Divine Joy and Liberty
Christ drank the cup filled with the curse of God's law merited by our sins. Our sins nailed his hands and feet to Golgotha's Cross. He was given vinegar to drink before He fully emptied the cup of avenging, punishing wrath on our account.
Christ did not leave any of this bitter wine for His children to drink, as Romans 8:1 declares, "There is therefore NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."
Christ now places before us the cup of salvation.
