Good Lord’s Day morning, Church! Well, we have made it to the 40th day of the Lenten Season, and the start of Holy Week. Have you been uplifted and challenged by the journey? Have the Lenten Scripture readings and prayers strengthened your faith? Believe it or not, this is the first time I have ever done anything like this. Yeah, that’s right; it has been an interesting journey for me too. Today is known as Palm Sunday–a special day on the religious calendar that commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, an event mentioned in each of the four canonical Gospels. Of course, the masses had no idea what kind of King Jesus was or the kind of kingdom He came to bring. Hopefully, you are not confused or disappointed! Hopefully, you have placed your faith in the risen King Jesus and have a secure knowledge of being a significant part of His Kingdom!! Let’s consider today’s Lenten Scripture readings and prayer: Psalm 24, 29; Zechariah 12:9–13:9; I Timothy 6:12-16; Luke 19:41-48. “Loving God, I am just beginning to realize how much You love me. Your Son, Jesus was humble and obedient. He fulfilled Your will for Him by becoming human and suffering with us. I ask You for the desire to become more humble so that my own life might also bear witness to You. I want to use the small sufferings I have in this world to give You glory. Please, Lord, guide my mind with Your truth. Strengthen my life by the example of Jesus. Help me to be with Jesus in this week as He demonstrates again His total love for me. He died so that I would no longer be separated from You. Help me to feel how close You are and to live in union with You. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.” Worship the King!! Thanks for journeying; Blessings to all–PT.
