Pastor Ryan explores key elements of Jesus entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday from Mark 11:15-19 & 11:27-33. Why did Jesus clear the temple? Why were the religious leaders so upset and questioning Jesus? What is the whole “authority” question all about?
Look Back Share any ways you were lived out the unending love of Jesus this past week.
Look Up Reread Mark 11:15-19 & 11:27-33
What stood out to you most today?
How do you react to authority figures? How do you view God’s authority in your own life?
Has Jesus ever come into your life and “cleared things out”? What was your reaction? How have you grown from it?
Read Ephesians 1:19-2:7. How is Christ’s authority described? How are we brought into his authority? How does this change how we live?
Take a moment and ask God how he wants you to respond. Is there an area of your life that you are holding back from God, resisting his authority in your life? What is God asking you to do in response today?
