Question for Reflection

James and John, elsewhere called “Sons of Thunder” (see Mark 3:17), ask to sit at Jesus’ side and share in his glory (Mark 10:35–37). Jesus, in turn, asks whether they are able to drink his cup or be baptized with his baptism (Mark 10:38). Isaiah’s song of the Suffering Servant has similar themes: “Therefore I will allot him a portion with the great . . . because he poured out himself to death” (Isa. 53:12). What does it mean to share in Christ’s glory? What does it mean to share in his cup or his baptism?

Household Prayer: Morning

Lord Most High, guard my way

and guide my steps this day,

that I may serve you faithfully

and trust in your salvation. Amen.


Household Prayer: Evening

Lord Most High, be my light

and shelter me this night,

that I may know your faithfulness

and rest in your salvation. Amen.
