Let's celebrate our King... not just at Easter, but every day of our lives. ♥
Can you identify with these children? Perhaps they were being told to hush up and keep their hosannas under control as they passed by the temple? After all...their loud praises might disturb the worshipers inside... Does that happens today sometimes, too, when people get hit with the joy of the Lord inside the “temple”?
I'm talking about His joy that bubbles up inside of us at times as a result of embracing the new covenant gospel. His joy cannot be contained because it's coming forth from the Spirit in us who wants others to know that His well of joy is available to them, too.
Remember what Jesus said to His disciples? “If you don't let the children praise Me, the stones will begin to cry out!” Here in Revelation 7:9 we are given a beautiful picture of God’s children holding palm branches as they praise their King in His Kingdom for all eternity. ♥
