Palm Sunday

Prayer

Prayer Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy Heavenly Father, thank You for having the death angel pass by my door in Jesus name. Hallelujah!
Father, I pray and bless this The Lord's Day, but more so, it is Palm Sunday. Let we Christians commemorate Jesusriding a ass [donkey] into Jerusalem with the people shouting when they heard that Jesus was coming: 
   "13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is           the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. 14 And Jesus, when he had found           a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written, 15Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King             cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt." John 12:12b-15, NKJV
For this Yahweh, I pray thanking You for Your Son for my and others salvation through him Your divine gift to man. John 3:16
In Jesus name. Amen.

International Sunday School Lesson

Lesson for April 13, 2014A Messianic Priest-KingJeremiah 23:5, 6; Zechariah 6:9-15; John 19:1-5; Hebrews 7:13This treatment of the International Sunday School Lesson is written by Sam E. Stone, former editor of CHRISTIAN STANDARD. ______ By Sam E. Stone All of the Old Testament prophecies about the Messiah were fulfilled in Jesus. Today we hear from two prophets, Jeremiah and Zechariah, before turning to John’s Gospel to see how their predictions came true. Jeremiah is often called “the weeping prophet” because of the difficult message he had to deliver. Chapter 23, however, brings vibrant hope for the future. Zechariah prophesied years later, after the Jewish people returned from exile. He challenged them to complete rebuilding the temple and offered hope for better times. The Righteous Branch-KingJeremiah 23:5, 6The shepherds had not taken care of the needs of the sheep, and God was prepared to punish them (seeJeremiah 23:1-4). He promised to return the flock from the lands where they …

Connect the Testaments: A Daily Devotional

Deuteronomy 23:1–25:19; 2 Corinthians 6:1–13; Psalm 39

When we say something hurtful to a friend or a family member, we know we can’t just ignore the harm we have caused (we should know, anyway). In order to repair the relationship and earn back trust, we have to acknowledge the rift we’ve created. But when it comes to our relationship with God, we don’t always look at it the same way. Sometimes, consciously or unconsciously, we belittle the incredible love that He has shown us.

When we don’t acknowledge our sin as an act of rebellion, we feel far from God. We’ve created this great divide because we’ve tarnished our relationship with Him. In Psalm 39, the psalmist is in great agony over his sin—to the point where he acknowledges that people are nothing and his life is vanity: “Surely a man walks about as a mere shadow” (Psa 39:5).

Without God, life is meaningless. The psalmist acknowledges that his transgression has done great harm. He turns to God and says: “And n…
