How long?

“How long must I stay with you?” 

Mark 9:19

How long?

“Until the rooster sings and the sweat stings and the mallet rings . . .”

How long?

“Long enough for every sin to so soak my sinless soul that heaven will turn in horror until my swollen lips pronounce the final transaction:

‘It is finished.’”

Jesus bore all things,

believed all things,

hoped all things,

and endured all things.

Every single one.
