Day 16

As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, saying, "Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples." He answered, "I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out."—Luke 19:37-40

This was Jesus's royal march to the end of this mission on earth. He entered the Holy City praised by a few exuberant followers only at the end to be rejected by his own people—not respected.

The irony of this moment is that this was cause for celebration for some, and for others, it was cause for concern. For those who had walked with Jesus, this resulted in uninhibited praise. For those not so familiar, their inhibitions were exhibited by their present concerns. Regardless Jesus understands that if men did not sing and celebrate, that creation itself would demand response as even stones are singing about this moment.

Everyone will experience the coming of Christ differently. Even so, we who are Christians should not diminish our praise. We should praise more readily and energetically, not to taunt but to celebrate. Why leave celebration to the boulders, rocks, and pebbles? Instead, let's praise the King together as followers of Christ.

DO THIS: This week, we are focusing on the discipline of brotherhood.

Your Call To Act (C.T.A.) today is:

  • Pray: for 3-5 minutes, praising God for what he has done for you and others.
  • Share: below, giving a shout of praise as bothers.
  • Tell: one person today something you are praising God about.

Share It Like A Brother ⚡

  58. Gordon Schlegel says:

    Admittedly, this is a self-centered shout-out, but I have to praise God that He didn’t allow me to be of the world, meaning that when I tried to act like the world does, the world would say, in some way, “You’re too ‘off’ to act like we do”. From the start, He wanted me to be His, not because of anything I would or could do — because that amounts to zero, zip, nothing — but because of His grace, and His grace alone.

    Bless the Lord oh my soul. His steadfast love protect us in times of needs and in danger! Worship His holy name!

    Brothers who are with me on this journey to recognize how much Jesus Christ has blessed us with. Remember we are all worthy of all Jesus’s gifts. We must rise to the top and live by the faith of Jesus Christ. Yes we will fall but we must ask for forgiveness, rebuke our sin and ask for the strength to fight temptation in the future. Once forgiven by Jesus we must forget as Jesus does and move forward. Do not let satin keep us down. In Jesus name I pray.
