James and John are zealous disciples of Jesus. They follow Him faithfully and well, but they ask for more. They want to serve Jesus completely.

Service is a hallmark of the Christian life. Every disciple is challenged to serve God and to serve others.

The mystery of discipleship is to see Jesus in my neighbor and my neighbor in Jesus. O Holy Spirit, grant me the wisdom to be a person of service. May I be zealous in my desire to serve Christ in others.
