PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord Jesus, You not only place our feet under Your table, You have set an example of washing Your disciples’ feet. I pray that, by Your enabling strength, I will do a better job of washing the feet of others, as their servant, in a variety of ways. Amen!
100 PERSONAL WORDS:
On Palm Sunday we celebrate the anniversary of the day Jesus fulfilled the prophecy of Zechariah 9:9. Jewish people were coming to Jerusalem by the thousands from all over the world to celebrate Passover. They knew the prophecies well and the reputation of Jesus. They shouted “Hosanna,” which means “save now” (Matthew 21:1-11). No doubt, many believed that Jesus was about to overthrow and declare Himself an earthly king, freeing Israel from the rule of Rome. Matthew would show us that Jesus’ commitment was meeting the needs of people like “Mephibosheth,” rather than sitting on an eartlhly throne. I believe God has spoken to me about a “Mephibosheth” for whom I should show more love and practical service.
Yours for placing feet under the King’s table, because of His amazing grace,
