Walk Towards Easter. 8.
Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted,” Hosanna!” ” Blessed is he who comes in the name of The Lord!” ” Blessed is the coming Kingdom of our father David!”” Hosanna in the Highest Heaven !” Mark 11:9-10
Q. How do you rejoice in King Jesus? What makes Jesus worthy of our praise? How can you praise Jesus today ?
People were throwing their coats and laying branches down along the path where Jesus entered into the city, riding on a donkey. He was the CENTRE of the procession. Shouting words of praise and adoration, the crowd that gathered was caught up in the excitement and joy of the occasion , willing to demonstrate their support, as all seemed to be going well.
It’s often so much easier to praise and rejoice when life is travelling along smoothly, but what happens when we hit a speed bump? ” Worthy of all praise”‘ Do we really believe this? Because all , is encompassing of the good times and the bad times. By placing Jesus at the CENTRE of our world, He is in the midst of everything. In each and every experience we can turn to Him, give Him praise and rejoice in the knowledge that He is the heart, the core of our being.
When our everyday, no matter what it entails, is pivotal upon Jesus as the nucleus, our very lives will become praise unto Him.
So Who’s at the CENTRE of your procession ? Are you giving praise or have you decided to ride the donkey yourself ?
