The Coming Of The King
This week, Pastor David shared the story of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem from the Gospel of Matthew. He showed us:
- The Humility Of The King
- The Victory Of The King
- Contrary to the expectations and hopes of the first century Jewish worshippers on Palm Sunday, Jesus came as a humble and gentle King. As you allow Him to reign in your life, He produces the counter-cultural witness of humility, gentleness, and peace. In what area of your life is He working to rid you of your pride and arrogance? Explain.
- While the Passover crowds thought they were witnessing a victory parade, they were actually watching a funeral march. Jesus' ultimate victory was in His death. His crown was a crown of thorns, and the only sword He knew was the sword of the Roman soldier that pierced His side. Why, as believers, do we rejoice in that funeral march?
- Pastor David shared a quote by John Piper: “God is always doing 10,000 things in your life, and you may be aware of three of them.” Think about a time when you didn't get something you thought you wanted or needed. How are you encouraged by knowing that God is working in ways you cannot always see or understand?
The grace of the LORD Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. ~ 2 Corinthians 13:14
