What Jesus Did! 'Center of the Procession' — Mark 11:9-10

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

Some of the people were walking ahead of Jesus. Other people were walking behind him. All the people shouted, "'Praise Him!' 'Welcome! God bless the One that comes in the name of the Lord!' God bless the kingdom of our father David. That kingdom is coming! Praise to God in heaven!"
— Mark 11:9-10 NLT
Illustration of Mark 11:9-10 NLT — "'Praise Him!' 'Welcome! God bless the One that comes in the name of the Lord!' God bless the kingdom of our father David. That kingdom is coming! Praise to God in heaven!"

Key Thought

In the center of all of our worship we will find Jesus. He is God who has come among us to reveal the Father's grace and truth. He is the one who pours out the Spirit who fills us when we praise. His sacrifice and victory over death are at the center of our forgiveness and victorious future. Jesus, Christ our Lord, is the center.

Today's Prayer

O Father, thank you for your grace lavished on me through your Son. Thank you for revealing yourself so fully, so intimately, so humanly, in Jesus. Open my eyes and help me see what I need to do to have your Son be the center of my life. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
