Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside and said to them, We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will turn him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!
Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Jesus with her sons and kneeling down, asked a favor of him, What is it you want? he asked.
She said, Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom.
You don’t know what you are asking, Jesus said to them, Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?
We can, they answered.
Jesus said to them, You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father.
When the ten heard about this, they were indignant with the two brothers. Jesus called them together and said, You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave – just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
I was up bright and early this morning and off to work…
Today was oh so fast… Everyone but one person showed up today so we got the ad done on time and were able to get other tasks done too… except me as I had to go to a meeting to prepare for meetings we will be having later in the month…
I was home early, so while talking with hubby and son2, I made dinner early, but we still didn’t sit down til almost six… we watched Vikings… and now we are watching Lost in Space and Batman… hubby found the METV channel on cable… we had lost it since getting cable… and the sun was still up… best part of changing the clocks, the sun staying up later…
Now we’re having ice cream with caramel sauce…
And I’m off the next two days…
God already knew everything you were going to do wrong and He still wants to forgive you, all you need to do is receive it.
Stop looking to people to meet your needs and start looking to God. Don't make others responsible for your happiness!
Old things pass away and all things become brand new. And something wonderful can happen to you!
Today, Linda, we believe God wants you to know that ...
change is the very nature of life, - welcome it.
No glass ever became sand again; No bread ever became wheat; No ripened fruit ever became a flower. Welcome change, and choose what kind of glass you create, what kind of bread you bake, what kind of fruit you harvest.
