Luke 9: 57-60


"And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.  Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God."  Luke 9: 57-60

Luke does not identify the men who passionately wanted to follow Jesus.  Were they impressed with Jesus’ teachings and miracles, the fellowship among the Disciples, or maybe they thought this was the latest craze and wanted to join in?  Whatever the reason, these men got a reality check. Jesus did not ask them to follow Him in the literal sense, but to “go and preach the Gospel” and to not return to their former way of life.  To be a disciple of Jesus, it is not about following, but all about doing, without looking back.

Hebrews 12:2


“I will declare thy name unto my brethren; in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.”  Hebrews 12:2

To be able to express ourselves in song in a blessing from God.  Not just beautiful melody and harmony, but a heartfelt expression lifted up to Him. The scriptures admonish us to sing “Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your hearts to the Lord”  (Ephesians 5:19).  Additionally, we are admonished to “sing with the spirit…and with the understanding also” (II Corinthians 14:15). Other creatures of God’s universe have their own unique sound, but it is human beings that are able to express their deepest convictions and faith with a song.

The Exodus


The record of the Israelite nation breaking free from four centuries of slavery in Egypt is one of the most fascinating stories chronicled in the Bible.  Orchestrated by God and led by Moses, this event and subsequent journey to Canaan, called The Exodus, provides the basis for most of the first five books of Old Testament writings.  God gave these people land on which to build a nation and laws on which to form a civil and religious society.  These laws, or covenant, established a relationship with God had at its core the Ten Commandments.  It is through the rich history of God dealing with the Israelites that we understand the New Testament and salvation through Jesus Christ.

John 1:17 states, "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ."

Because He Lives


"Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!"
(Chorus from song Because He Lives by Bill and Gloria Gaither)

Ephesians 6:10 states, "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might."

We serve a God that is alive!  His resurrection grants us the power we need to live a life that is free from the bondage of Sin.  His Holy Spirit provides us power to be confident in the way God works in our lives.   I pray that everyone embraces this resurrection power and allows it to work in their lives every day of the year.

Hosanna in the highest


Matthew 21: 8-9 says, "And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way.  And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest."

This week marks the celebration of Christ’s triumphant entrance into Jerusalem.  The people in Jerusalem were clearly excited to see their savior.  Do you have a savior?  Do you need a savior?

John 3:16 states, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

Jesus Christ was sent by God to be our savior and just like those in Jerusalem, we can experience a triumphant entrance of Christ in our lives through his Holy Spirit.  Then we can declare “Hosanna in the highest!!"
