Heavenly Father, sometimes when we don't particularly like something, we use the expression "that's not my cup of tea".  Generally, we mean we prefer something else, but we can also mean quite specifically that we do not like something
 
Lord Jesus, You certainly divided people into those who loved You and those who hated You, so much so that some people wanted to kill You, and eventually did through a mockery of a trial and a savage execution
 
But there were also those who loved You and came back to the grave to anoint Your body, finding You had risen!  Even though some ran away at first, later they would give their lives for You
 
It may be that, for some, religion is not their cup of tea, but Lord Jesus, You were very specific about the Way to the Father, leaving no wobble room, no area of doubt. You said, "No one comes to the Father except through me"
 
Whether we like it or not, our relationship with God, the Father, is entirely dependent upon You. You have kept it simple, saying "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life".  Whether we like tea or not, whether we like the T of the cross or not, it is not a matter of like or dislike, it is a matter of death and life. Your death instead of mine. Your life giving eternal life to mine
 
Thank You Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit, let Your Way be my way too; let Your Truth be my truth too; let Your Life be my life too. And let Your love be my love too; there is no greater love than Your love, Your life laid for me. We all drink from the One Cup!  Thank You. Amen
