Walking Towards Jerusalem

When Jesus was walking

perhaps he was thinking

of Isaiah 55:12—

You will go out in joy and be led

forth in peace; the mountains

and hills will burst forth into song

before you, and all the trees

of the field will clap their hands.

While walking

James and John asked Jesus

to do something for them

which was to sit one on the right

the other on the left

when Jesus reaches His glory

(they still were thinking

the kingdom of David

would be restored)

Jesus said

You don’t know what you ask

for you are asking something

that I cannot give

The other disciples were angry

(remember how they had argued

about who would be

greatest among them)

so Jesus called them together

& told them whoever desires

to be great among them

shall be your servent &

whoever wants

to be #1

shall be slave of all

for even He came to serve

& give His life as ransom

for many
