It may well be that the world is denied miracle after miracle and triumph after triumph because we will not bring to Christ what we have and what we are. If, just as we are, we would lay ourselves on the altar of service of Jesus Christ, there is no saying what Christ could do with us and through us.
Palm Sunday begins our sobering journey with the Lord Jesus Christ as He swiftly moves toward His passion. What begins as triumph turns to turbulence. What comes from chaos is careful woe, inconceivable torture, and cruel death. What comes from death is victorious resurrection, power, life abundant, freedom, everlasting joy, unconditional love, hope, and peace. The eternal salvation of our souls.
Christ's passion was a divine plan. Conceived by the Father, wrought through the Holy Spirit, humbly received by the Son. And it is now our gift to receive. Christ's choice to suffer humility, agony, loneliness, grief, torture, and separation from His father as He died on the cross was all done for me. . . for you. . . for your family. . . for all humanity.
And now, as we have received Him, so we must return our lives to Him. We must accept Him as He is. Christ has been glorified. He is all authority. He will rule and reign eternally. And He is, this very moment, Lord of all and longs to reign supremely in our lives. Not as we perceive Him necessarily, through our own subjective interpretation, but as one who longs to rule in our hearts. In His own way. With His own power. Changing us from glory to glory and image to image.
May Jesus have His way in our hearts, lives, and minds today. May we now and forever see Him God's way. Enjoy this video. Many blessings to you this weekend.
