Is it I, Lord?
It seems surprising for the disciples other than Judas to ask "Is it I, Lord?" They each knew full well there was no intention of any of them to betray Him. Yet there was revealed in their question, perhaps a doubt in their own capacity to follow Jesus at any cost. Perhaps it was a sincere acknowledgment of their weakness.
In our own way, we should have this same humility to acknowledge that we are not always faithful followers of Jesus, that we are afraid to carry the cross like Him.
Let us ask Him today the same question but with the intent to ask Him to strengthen us in our weakness.
