What Jesus Wants To See In Us


" A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road. The crowds that went ahead of Him and those that followed shouted, 'Hosanna to the Son of David....Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord......Hosanna in the highest'" (Matt.21:8-9).

Today's passage from the Book of Matthew comes from a section of the Bible that we like to call, "THE TRIUMPHAL ENTRY" The whole city was stirred and many gave praise to Him. As we look at Jesus here he is receiving rich accolades. We get see what the people were seeing in Him. Lets turn the tables and look at what Jesus wants to sees in us....Jesus wants to see people who praise Him. The more we praise, the less we will complain and whine about things. Jesus wants to see people who pray a lot. When we pray, we tell the Lord that we need Him and can't do without Him. Jesus wants to see people who have a deep and enduring passion for Him. When we truly cherish someone, we place a high value on them as if they were a prized treasure. We should prize Jesus in this way, thus having a great affection for Him...I we misplace a toothpick, we might not search for it with much diligence, but if it were a 50 dollar bill, we will search with much more passion. When we have a deep affection for Jesus, we will be passionate toward Him. Finally, when we are passionate toward Him, our praise for Him will be constant. When we sing and pray, those songs and prayers will emanate from our hearts. These things should bring a never ending joy to us as we give back to the Lord all that He deserves. We will enjoy Jesus....

Have a wonderful day...Let His light shin from you.... Love mark Phil.4:11
