The Suffering Messiah - A Kingdom that Serves - Tuesday, April 11th

The Suffering Messiah - A Kingdom that Serves - Tuesday, April 11th

A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them 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 heaven!” Matthew 21:8-9

Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse …. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:14 & 21

For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps, who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth; and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously; and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. For you were continually straying like sheep, but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Guardian of your souls. 1 Peter 2:21-25

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

Christ’s spiritual kingdom operates from a dynamic that is foreign to human kings and kingdoms. Christ and His followers operate from a position of being under rather than over. We offer ourselves to others in order to be able to support and hold them up rather than to dominate them so they will do our bidding. Mistreatment is just further opportunity to bless those who need Christ’s touch the most. It is interesting that such a display of honor when Christ entered Jerusalem was followed so soon by the ultimate mistreatment of a person. Certainly, Jesus freely offered Himself up for us and all the while He did not curse but blessed. The sacrifice of Christ on the cross was the ultimate act of overcoming evil with good. We have been called to overcome evil with good and so follow in His steps.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, I choose the path of humility and service. Help me truly follow in your footsteps by living sacrificially for others. It is hard to bless and not curse. It is difficult to return good for evil. I will trust you, Lord. I know you will give me the victory. Thank you for sacrificing yourself for me. I love you and worship you. Amen!

Hiya! Quick question that's totally off topic.
Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4.
I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this
problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
Thank you!

Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like
Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely
overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks!
