Who Is This?
March 25, 2018
Read: Luke 19:28–40
Bible in a Year: Joshua 19–21; Luke 2:25–52
Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!—Luke 19:38
Imagine standing shoulder to shoulder with onlookers by a dirt road. The woman behind you is on her tiptoes, trying to see who is coming. In the distance, you glimpse a man riding a donkey. As He approaches, people toss their coats onto the road. Suddenly, you hear a tree crack behind you. A man is cutting down palm branches, and people are spreading them out ahead of the donkey.
Jesus’s followers zealously honored Him as He entered Jerusalem a few days before His crucifixion. The multitude rejoiced and praised God for “all the miracles they had seen” (Luke 19:37). Jesus’s devotees surrounded Him, calling out, “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!” (v. 38). Their enthusiastic honor affected the people of Jerusalem. When Jesus finally arrived, “the whole city was stirred and asked, ‘Who is this?’ ” (Matthew 21:10).
Today, people are still curious about Jesus. Although we can’t pave His way with palm branches or shout praises to Him in person, we can still honor Him. We can discuss His remarkable works, assist people in need, patiently bear insults, and love each other deeply. Then we must be ready to answer the onlookers who ask, “Who is Jesus?” —Jennifer Benson Schuldt
Lord, may my life and my words express what I know about who You are. I want others to see You in me and to know You too.
We honor God’s name when we live like His children.
INSIGHT: Do you sometimes struggle with finding the right words and right time to speak about Jesus? Your concern and hesitancy may be from God. There is a time to speak and a time to be quiet (Ecclesiastes 3:7). The Spirit knows the difference. Sometimes He is in the quiet moments and thoughtful actions that prepare the way for words later. Sometimes He enables us to fill a silence so ripe for words that if we don’t gently express our confidence in Jesus, it might feel as if even “the stones will cry out” (Luke 19:40). Mart DeHaan

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. (Lamentations 3:22-26 ESV)

If the Lord be with us, we have no cause of fear. His eye is upon us, His arm over us, His ear open to our prayer – His grace sufficient, His promise unchangeable. Amen

Everything Is For The Glory Of God by Jim Cymbala

Website: http://www.sermonindex.net | Twitter: http://goo.gl/f9i0R The work and ministry of sermonindex can be encapsulated in this one word: REVIVAL. sermonindex is not a organisation, business, or any attempt by man to build something for God. It is rather a expression of a heart burden to see the Church revived and brought back to holiness, purity, and power with God. “The mission of SermonIndex is the preservation and propogation of classical vintage preaching and the promotion of genuine biblical revival to this generation.”

Un mesaj fascinant de frumos, necesar și franc

Fratele Ciprian a venit necunoscut printre noi de la una din bisericile pentecostale din Madrid, Spania. A plecat însă îndrăgit și a lăsat în urmă ecourile unei predici care ne va urmări multă vreme. Fac rar astfel de recomandări … Ascultați-l și voi și spuneți dacă n-am dreptate. Dacă n-aveți timp pentru tot, deși ați afla multe lucruri interesante, treceți direct la minutul 28:21

1. Mă-ntrebi: ce e harul?E­o sfântă minune

Când Soarele-apare şi nu mai apune,

Şi chiar peste neguri şi nori de-ncercări,

Te poartă-n lumină pe­a’ slavei cărări.  

2. Ce-­i harul? E Domnul ce vine pe valuri

Şi-n miezul de noapte te-­aduce la maluri;

E Domnul, Păstorul, ce-­ţi dă un sărut

Când alţii cu pumnii-ncleştaţi te-au bătut.

3. Ce­i harul? E-o viaţă deplin înnoită

În sângele Jertfei, ca neaua albită.

E haina purtată din zori la apus,

Dar fără de pată în Domnul Isus.

4. Ce-i harul? E visul deja ce se vede,

Trăit cu iubire în cel care crede;

E pacea pe faţa acelui iertat,

În vorbele sfinte şi-n gândul curat.

  5. Ce-i harul?  E Domnul pe crucea amară,

În locul tău, Mielul întins ca să moară,

E ziua-nvierii din veacul cel rău,

Când poţi şi tu spune: “Sunt, Doamne, al Tău!”

1.I ask, “What is Grace?”

It is a Holy miracle

When the Sun appears and does not set

And even over fog and clouds of trials

He carries you in light on the paths of Glory

  1. What is Grace? It is the Lord that comes on the waves

And at midnight takes you to shore

It is the Lord, the Shepherd, that gives you a kiss

When others with clenched fists have beaten you

  1. What is Grace? It is a life completely renewed

In the blood of His Sacrifice, made white as snow

It is the Holy clothing worn on the last day

Chlothing that is stainless in the Lord Jesus’s blood

  1. What is Grace? It is the dream already seen

Lived with love in Him who believes

It is the peace on the face of the forgiven

In Holy words and clean thought

  1. What is Grace? It is the Lord on the bitter cross,

In your place, the Lamb spread out to die

It is the day of resurrection from the evil age

When you too can say, “Lord, I am Yours.”

Dear God,You know our hearts, you hear our prayers, and you care about all that concerns us. You understand the burdens we carry and how we want, more than anything, to see our loved ones come to you. Help us to remember that you love them more than we ever could. And you desire to answer our prayers quickly in this season, to extend your magnificent love, forgiveness, mercy and hope.
Thank you that nothing is too difficult for you. Thank you that your power is unlimited and you came to set the captives free. Thank you that you wait, arms open, for the prodigal to return, that you look for his arrival to lavishly celebrate that he’s come home.
We praise you for you are Redeemer and Rescuer, Savior and Lord. We know and believe that there’s no pit so deep that your love can’t reach us still. We understand that your mercies are new every morning, and your faithfulness is great. Oh Lord, you are so faithful.
Lord, we ask that you would halt the plans of the enemy over our loved ones, as we bring them before you right now. We pray that the enemy’s schemes be demolished and that your plans for good, for a future and hope, would prevail. Would you open blind eyes that they might see your Truth, and open deaf ears to hear your Word. Would you rescue those walking in darkness and heal the deep wounds of those who’ve been hurt.
We pray for the miraculous intervention of your Spirit place a desire in their hearts to draw them to yourself, to work strong on behalf of our loved ones who are lost and wandering.
For you came with good news, to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for captives and release for the prisoners.
Though we deserved penalty for our wrong, you stood in our place and took the blows on our behalf. You choose to die, so that we can live. Eternally free.
Lord, forgive our unbelief. Forgive the times we’ve doubted that you could ever change a distant heart. Forgive our hard-heartedness, our weariness, or forgetfulness to “pray continually.”
Thank you that you never give up on us, never forsake us or leave us alone.
Remind us of how you’ve changed our own hearts and lives. How your miracle of life and hope has sprung up deep within our hearts and souls.
We love you Lord. We need you every moment of every day and we thank you that you always hear our prayers and are at work to complete our requests, even now.

In Jesus Christ’s Holy Name, Amen
