Tuesday 31 March 2020 POWER OF PRAYER Today’s devotion is taken from Luke 19:28-48 and this bible passage is mainly used for Palm Sunday sermon. It is about the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem riding on a donkey. That was a week of celebration with people lining the road, spreading their cloaks on the road as Jesus rode through, and waving palm branches shouting loudly joyful praises to God. But sadly, when that week ended, another week began whereby Jesus was arrested, tried, condemned and crucified. From that same bible passage, in verses 45-46, we recognized that Jesus was angry in seeing traders doing business in the temple, that he chased them out and said, “It is written, my house will be a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of robbers.” The Power of Praye r The church is, first and foremost, to be a place of prayer. A. W. Tozer, a modern-day prophet has said that the real size of a church is measured by who attend
30 March 2020 The Parable of the Ten Minas Good morning! Today’s devotion is taken from Luke 19:11-27- The Parable of the Ten Minas This parable is about the coming of the Kingdom of God on earth and Jesus will be asking us to account what we have done with all the resources given to us. Do we appreciate what we have and have we multiplied it for the Kingdom of God? 1) To be faithful The first servant and second servant appreciated that everything they had came from God and that we are called to be faithful and multiply what God had entrusted us with. They also appreciated that they were living for Christ and not for themselves. They took seriously the command which is to invest in plans and purposes that will be for His Glory. One of these which I want to focus on is the sharing of the Gospel. 1 Thessalonians 2:4 says that we are entrusted with the Gospel. To be entrusted means to be responsible over and to take care of”. God has entrusted all of us with shar

Devotion, 28 March 2020 Luke 19:1-9 – Wanting to See Jesus “He wanted to see Jesus… (v. 3)” Zacchaeus was a very wealthy Jewish man. Despite his wealth, he was hated and despised by his fellow countrymen. He was seen as a traitor to his people for a) working for the Roman Empire, b) collecting tax and, c) cheating people by collecting more than he should. He was an extremely despicable sinner! Scripture tells us that this despicable man “wanted to see Jesus (v3)”. If you make a quick comparison with him and the Rich Ruler in Luke 18:18-30, you will notice that the Rich Ruler went to meet Jesus because he desired to acquire eternal life. Zacchaeus simply wanted to see Jesus. He was not so much looking for salvation, but rather he was seeking the Saviour. By inviting Jesus into his home, he received both the Saviour and salvation. The evidence of salvation is a transformed life. Zacchaeus was transformed because he saw Jesus and welcomed him into his home. We can be
