Good day friends! I pray your week and weekend went well, and that this devotion finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy!
Readings for March 28, 2021; Palm Sunday
Zechariah 9:9-12; Psalm 118:19-29; Philippians 2:5-11; John 12:20-42
At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:10-11
What’s on your tongue these days? What words are coming out of your mouth?
I bet it’s safe to say that there isn’t one person in this world that hasn’t uttered the word Covid. It’s on our minds. It’s in our words. It affects our actions. It has changed our lives. Yes, everyone in the world, from the least to the greatest, has Covid on their lips.
Just imagine if every time the word Covid was spoken, it was replaced with the name of Jesus. If that could be done, we would literally have every tongue proclaiming the name of Jesus. How wonderful that would be!
Although I know such an event will not be taking place any time soon, may I challenge you? Over the next couple weeks as we come to the end of Lent and lead up to Easter, every time you think or speak about Covid or put on a mask, may you speak with your lips and give praise in your heart the name of Jesus. No, not every tongue will be confessing and every knee bowing, but all around the world we could literally have Jesus’ name acknowledged above any other name. Yes, may we believe in our hearts and confess with our lips that Jesus is Lord, now and always. To Him alone be the glory!
PRAYER: Dear Jesus, Glory to you, O Lord! Praise to you, O Christ! To you alone be all the glory and honour and praise. AMEN!
