Swimming With Jesus

St. James. “Are you able to drink of the cup that I am about to drink.” Matt. 20:20-23 The life and the convictions of Jesus would lead him to drink of the bitter cup of rejection, suffering, and death.  Being close to him would mean something like that for his followers.  He often reminded them of this.  I am reminded of that more and more.  And I am reminded that to follow Jesus is not easy, but brings much joy, and I find much joy. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
