Ready to go
We remember Todd Beamer for his courageous leadership in the face of extreme danger aboard Flight 93 on September 11, 2001.
“Are you guys ready? Let’s roll!”
Jesus faced a far deadlier peril. When He announced, “Let us go to Judea again” (John 11:7), His disciples protested that His enemies there had just tried to kill Him.
Willing to go
Jesus explained His intention to go there to raise Lazarus, “so that you may believe . . . .” Bringing others to faith was more important to Him than His own personal safety.
His disciples had only a vague idea of what they would be facing. Jesus knew only too well.
But still He said, “Let’s go.”
And so they went.
