Call to Offering

Genesis 13:37  “Arise, walk int he land through its length and its width for I give it you you.”

 

Pslam 37:4  “Delight yourself in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart.”

2 Cor. 9:17  “Let each one give as he purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver”

As we give in today’s offering we give because God has first given to us.  God has given us His love and forgiveness.  He has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness   God has been a liberal give, holding back nothing.  He give into our lives even when we don’t deserve it.  Now we have one small opportunity to give back, to give with thankfulness out of what God has already given to us.  Lord her is our tithe and offering.  Take this small seed and multiply it many  times for your work. Amen

Sermon Notes:

 Welcoming His Entrance!

Matthew 21:1-11  March 29, 2020  Pastor Dale Swanson

 Let’s Read Matt. 21:1-11

Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once.” This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying,

“Say to the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, your king is coming to you,
    humble, and mounted on a donkey,
    on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden.’”

The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them. Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” 10 And when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, “Who is this?” 11 And the crowds said, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee.”

 

Welcome Him with Unhindered Obedience

“The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them.” Matt. 21:6

Welcome Him with Extravagant Worship

“Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.  And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting” Matt. 21:8-9a

“It is a mark of Christ’s presence when the church becomes enthusiastic. We sometimes hear complaints about revivals being too exciting. Perhaps the censure is deserved, but I would like to see a little of the fault. This age does not generally sin in the direction of being too excited concerning divine things. We have erred so long on the other side that, perhaps, a little excess in the direction of fervor might not be the worst of all calamities; at any rate, I would not fear to try it.” – Spurgeon

Welcome His Saving Power

“Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” Matt. 21:9b

Ohana: Ohana is a deep community of people who celebrate God and one another. In Ohana there is a seat at the table for everyone. In Ohana we discover what it means to be the best version of our true selves.
