Verse of the Day:  Matthew 21:1-11

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3 If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.” 4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet: 5 “Say to Daughter Zion, ‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’ ” 6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. 8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!” 10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?” 11 The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”

Freedom

2 Corinthians 3 17.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  2 Corinthians 3:17

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

 

As a nation we ought to be grateful for the freedom we have in this country and for many of us it’s our tradition to celebrate that freedom.  As a child of God we have an even greater freedom because God is present in our lives and we are freed from the chains that bind us. There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain that tries to restrain us and keep us in a life of sin. There is true freedom from knowing and having a relationship with our Savior Jesus Christ!

One night the Lord spoke to Paul, “Do not be afraid, keep on speaking, do not be silent.

 

We live in a society where everyone wants to give their opinion on anything and everything.

The promised Messiah, the Savior had been born.  The good news of the Savior’s birth is the reason for great joy and celebration!
