We hope this becomes a dependency. Strange thing for a therapist to say. But we are dependent on God for life and peace and joy. Spending time with Him every day (imagining these vignettes) will enhance your life and growth as nothing else can.

 

Misinformation about God is rampant out there today. This is good stuff--agreeing with the best interpretation you can put on Scripture.

 

  Below, Love's Playbook, Arla's new series, is the first interpretive version of the Bible -- it's God's love story like you've never read it--written to keep you reading! (Images are Amazon linked )

 

# 179 Finally a King!

By Arla, Jan 5 2021 02:00AM

 

It's Sunday, the day after Simon's feast, and many of the people from Jerusalem who had come to Bethany to see Jesus, accompany him now. He had sent two disciples to borrow a donkey and its colt, and now with excitement they put their cloaks on the young donkey's back for Jesus to ride. Finally he is going to enter the capital and proclaim himself king! is in everyone's minds.

 

 Five hundred years before Jesus, Zechariah prophesied that Messiah would enter Jerusalem riding the never-ridden foal of a donkey.*

 

As soon as he's seated on the colt, in the tradition of the kings of Israel, a shout of triumph rings out. Lazarus leads the donkey, while the people honor Jesus by putting garments in his path or cutting palm and olive branches to wave in the air or lay as a carpet before him.


Even nature seems in a rejoicing mood. New leaves are on the trees. Spring's blossoms waft delicate perfume everywhere. New life and joy fill the air. Crowds, on their way to Jerusalem for Passover, join the procession through the green countryside.

 

"Hosanna to the Son of David" bursts out and echoes from surrounding hills as people hear and come shouting and singing from everywhere, even Jerusalem. His entourage swells continually as they progress. Those healed by Jesus are eager to join this celebration.

 

As they approach Jerusalem, the priests blow the trumpet for the evening service but few respond, and in terror the rabbis say, "The whole world has gone after him!"

 

Matthew 21:1-11,  Mark 11:1-10,  Luke 19:29-38   *Zechariah 9:9
