"The Church on the Hill"

THIS WEEK

A Grain of Wheat

Don’t be a grain of wheat in storage. John 12:24, “Truly, truly, I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a seed; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” Persecution is not a bad thing.

Ushering in the New and Living Way

Sharon Evans on “Sovereign Changes” Pastor Bernard Evans on Jesus’ Prophetic response to the Father on Palm Sunday: Matthew 21, Mark 11: 1-10, Luke 19: 28, John 12: 1, 9, 12. The disciples’ understanding was delayed until a situation when they needed the Word in season. Seek God and the Holy Spirit will bring it to understanding. When you have a directive from God, He will give you the answer to those who question, “What are you doing?” Surrender your coats on the colt and in the way. Multitudes wanted to see Lazarus and Jesus, a mixture of people with various reasons. Rejoice and glorify God in worship! Multitudes contain those who want to control and silence Jesus. The donkey represented peace, a new day when Jesus rode an untamed beast outside the normal place of worship. Praise was not limited to the Holy Place. He was changing the order of things.
