John 12:13 niv

palms

Palm branches signify victory.  Hosanna means save.  
The people were shouting praise to Jesus who would save them. 
They believed He was coming, as King, to save them from the Romans.  
They did not understand that He came to give them so much more.  
He came to free them from death’s finality
and give them eternal life in His kingdom.

What does waving palm branches and shouting Hosannas mean to you?
Do you understand what the victory and saving mean for you?

Blessings this day of grace,

John 4:24 msg

worship

God is everywhere.
He is not limited to certain places or buildings.
It doesn’t matter where we worship Him
or what ceremonies or rites take place.
Though worship with other believers is important
it is most important that wherever and whenever we worship
we do so in spirit and truth from our hearts.

Do you worship only in a building called church?
Where is your favorite or most meaningful worship place?

Blessings this day of grace,

John 8:32 hcs

free

The only truth that will set us free is the truth of Jesus’.
When we believe His word and follow Him faithfully
we will know the truth and be free from the chains of sin.

Sometimes it is difficult to be faithful…obedient to the Word.
It may be that we haven’t been taught the truth; 
and when we do know His teachings we may not understand
and be tempted to follow our own path. 
That is when we learn to live by faith and not by sight and remain faithful.  
There are many excuses for not being faithful but no good reasons.

How do you remain faithful?
What are your excuses when you wander from His teachings?
