Presentation of the King!

Luke 19:28-40

Behold, your King is coming to you!

Lets take every opportunity to lay before the throne of our mighty King Jesus all of our struggles, failures, shame, guilt and fear as well as our successes, victories and trophies.  Let’s submit all to the Lordship of Jesus and be led by His Holy Spirit and His truth.  Let’s walk with our brothers and sisters in Christ, bearing each other’s burdens and together fulfill our calling to make disciples of all the nations.  Let’s not let the rocks cry out but instead may nothing be heard over our passionate praise and worship of our King.

Hosanna, Hosanna, Hosanna in the Highest!  Come Lord Jesus, save us!
