This week we enter PASSION WEEK - our blessed celebration of the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ! Oh, may the Spirit of God work powerfully in us all to give us a fresh view of the Finished Work of our Savior! It all begins with the TRIUMPHAL ENTRY on Palm Sunday.
Title: "My House Will be Called A House of Prayer"
Text: Mt. 21:13
Scripture: Mt. 21:1-17
Theme: Christ asserted His Authority over Jerusalem, the city of God AND over the Temple, the House of God which was supposed to be a place of communion and fellowship with God for all peoples. The issue for us is rather obvious: Jesus Christ is our Master, Lord, King, Messiah. We are God's New Covenant Temple, we individually and together as the church.
Let's renew our commitment to KEEP THE HOUSE OF GOD A HOUSE OF PRAYER, FELLOWSHIP, PRAISE AND COMMUNION WITH OUR FATHER. This means submitting every corner of our lives (our Temple) to Messiah Jesus! Read our Scripture passage carefully and with deep mediation - as you prepare for Palm Sunday worship service.
