When was the last time you were excited about Jesus? Maybe we should ask, do you get excited about Jesus? Do you get excited about going to church, to the student ministry or the kids ministry? Do you get excited about serving others? Do you get excited about reading your bible, spend time with God in prayer? Do you get excited about opportunities to be with other believers to talk about Jesus or study his word together?
These might sound like strange questions, but I think the people in Jerusalem, in a small way, got something right. Often, we look at this story and focus on how the people cheered for Jesus because they thought he would be their next king. That like David, he would rule over the people of Israel and protect them from their enemies. But while the people might not have understood who Jesus was, they were still excited when he entered Jerusalem. They cheered for him, praised him and celebrated his presence with them.
That leads me ask, when was the last time we got excited about Jesus?
Take a few minutes as a family and think about times throughout the year when you might get excited about Jesus. Is it around the holidays such as Christmas or Easter?
Ask, why should we get excited about Jesus?
Close your time of family devotion in prayer.
