Today's Bible reading: Matthew 26:1-16
Jesus enters Jerusalem … He receives this incredible reception from the people … but not everyone is pleased. The rising popularity of the prophet from Nazareth causes the Jewish leaders to take final steps for His removal. And they find a ready ally in Judas – a man marked by greed, by selfish ambition and by false political hopes. Even in this small detail the prophecies of Zechariah - including the one we heard read as our Old Testament reading for this morning - came true. God’s plan is being carried out through sinful human beings!
Prayer: Strengthen our faith, dear God, to focus on Christ's death and resurrection for us and not on distractions. Amen.
GOD BLESS YOUR DAY!
