Celebrate Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. After the crowds cheered Jesus as their leader and king, Jesus cursed a fig tree and started a riot in the Temple as a way of challenging the status quo and calling people to live out their faith with greater commitment and integrity. That call still stands today and we still need to be challenged to make our faith come alive.
This week the miracle doesn’t happen instantly, instead, 10 lepers were healed as they followed Jesus’ commandment. God’s power came as they responded to Jesus word. Power comes to us as we step out in faith and trust in Jesus. Power also comes when we return to Jesus with a grateful heart to say thank you. Respond to God’s goodness this week and say thanks and give God praise.
The woman was desperate to have her daughter healed so she asked Jesus for help. When the disciples told her to go away – she kept asking. When Jesus said he didn’t come to heal her daughter – she kept asking. Wait… did Jesus really tell this woman he wouldn’t heal her daughter? How does this fit our understanding of Jesus’ all consuming, unconditional love? While at first it seems that Jesus is ready to send her away, this woman’s persistence and God’s love brings the miracle. Listen and read as we explore one of the most difficult passages of the New Testament (Matthew 15:21-28) and learn that Jesus’ love and God’s kingdom really is for all people.
