Thursday, July 25 — James, Apostle
 

  • 1 Kings 19:9-18
  • Psalm 7:1-10
  • Acts 11:27—12:3a
  • Mark 10:35-45

James and John left all that they had known and the future they had prepared for to follow Jesus on a path they couldn’t predict. When during that journey they asked Jesus for the places of honor in the coming kingdom, Jesus knew that once again they didn’t know what they were in for. Yet James did indeed drink from the same cup as Jesus when he became the first apostle to be killed for his faith. We, who also want to pin down God’s promise to us, pray that we will have the faith to follow Jesus into a future that is not the one we would have planned.
