Future faith

RE Verse reading–Mark 1:19-20, 3:13-17, 10:35- 45 (day six)
“They replied , ‘Let one of us sit at your right hand and the other at your left IN YOUR GLORY.’ ” (10:37)  If the Mayan calendar is correct the end of the world is just days away.  Yep!  January 21, 2012.  It is all over.  If you are interested in a second opinion on this important subject, I recommend the Bible.  At least James and John got this part right.  Their concept of the future was glory, the glory of Christ.  Pretty amazing considering the difficult days that Jesus and His disciples were facing.  Jesus had recently predicted His death to be followed by His resurrection.  Whatever else you think of James and John for their self-centeredness, their strong faith regarding the future was admirable.  They believed Jesus and saw clearly that the coming days were in His hands.  Let’s see. . .the pessimism of the Mayan calendar or the promises of God?  I know where my heart is.  You?
