03.28.2020 Devotional

For the past two weeks that our church has been closed, our Church Office has been fielding calls from members of our congregation who want to check on not only their friends, but all members of our church. They want to know if there are others that they should be praying for.

We have been adding people to our prayer list, and we thank you for your help in making calls, sending cards and letters and touching base through e-mail. It means a lot. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! It is such a joy to know that there are so many people keeping each of us in their thoughts and prayers, and not just in our church, but we pray for people all around the world. We are people of extreme connections. Being a Christian means that our connection extends across any and all barriers.

In our text this Sunday we see that this is true of Jesus as well. Just before Jesus makes his final approach to Jerusalem, he sends two disciples into a nearby village to find a donkey and a colt. The disciples are to take these animals, and if anyone asks, they are to say, "The Lord has need of them." These words are like a secret password. It seems that Jesus had a network of supporters extending far outside of Jerusalem. These supporters were keeping him in their thoughts and prayers. And now in the 21st century, we remain part of that network, praying and uplifting one another in the name of Jesus Christ.

Join us for online worship this Palm Sunday as Jesus continues his ride into Jerusalem. Our text is Matthew 21:1-11.
