Friday

Read Luke 19:28-40

28 After Jesus said this, he went on ahead of them to Jerusalem. 29As he came near Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, he sent two disciples ahead 30with these instructions: “Go to the village there ahead of you; as you go in, you will find a colt tied up that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 31If someone asks you why you are untying it, tell him that the Masterx needs it.”
32 They went on their way and found everything just as Jesus had told them. 33As they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying it?”
34 “The Mastery needs it,” they answered, 35and they took the colt to Jesus. Then they threw their cloaks over the animal and helped Jesus get on. 36As he rode on, people spread their cloaks on the road.
37 When he came near Jerusalem, at the place where the road went down the Mount of Olives, the large crowd of his disciples began to thank God and praise him in loud voices for all the great things that they had seen: 38“God bless the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory to God!”
39 Then some of the Pharisees in the crowd spoke to Jesus. “Teacher,” they said, “command your disciples to be quiet!”
40 Jesus answered, “I tell you that if they keep quiet, the stones themselves will start shouting.”

Think

As Jesus enters Jerusalem we know that this is going to be his last week.  As the people escort and praise him - they 'praise him in loud voices for all the great things they had seen'.

Pray

Praise God for the good things you see him do.
