GOOD NEWS 4 SEEKERS SUNDAY
John 12:14-18 Jesus found a young donkey and sat upon it, as it is written, “Do not be afraid, O Daughter of Zion; see, your king is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.” At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that they had done these things to him. Now the crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to spread the word. Many people, because they had heard that he had given this miraculous sign, went out to meet him.
The Living Way
PERCEPTION // What I see/hear God saying/doing:
It brings me tremendous comfort to know that God is sovereign. All things are under His rule. I don’t have to get caught up in what I seem to think is an adverse situation or inconvenient circumstance. He will work it out for good, and graciously include me.
PLAN // What I am going to do about it:
Father, may I never forget your greatness. May I be intentional about Your kingdom and Your righteousness. I want an attitude worth catching – the mind of Christ. A mind that loves the unlovely, helps and heals the hurting, and binds the broken – starting with those closes to me – to the furthest from me.
PRAYER // Seal the deal:
Holy Spirit, have Your way in me that I put off the old man daily and put on Christ. As I decrease, clarify my focus and increase my faith so that Your walk in me is a vital witness to the world around me. May I always be pliable in Your hand to constantly reflect Your glory in Christ Jesus. Amen.
