Matthew 17:1-8

Even among the twelve, there were several disciples who were the closest to Jesus. James was one of these three. Jesus takes Peter, James and John up on a mountain where they witnessed his transfiguration. James was able to witness a miracle and to be encouraged even more in following Christ. Take some time today to get away and draw close to Jesus. Perhaps spend some time in prayer with your spouse, a child, or a close friend. These three were more tightly bound to one another and to Christ after sharing this experience with one another.
