Weekly Watch Focus: Palm Sunday—Behold the Lamb of God

FRIDAY, March 23, 2018—“Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29).
We come to the holiest of weeks as we approach Palm Sunday. As Jesus entered Jerusalem riding on a donkey, He was about to offer Himself as our Atoning Lamb of God. This is the fulfillment of Passover. In Exodus 12, we see that as the Israelites took a lamb for each household, the blood of that lamb broke every yoke of slavery and oppression and released the children of Israel to go to the Promised Land. In the same manner, let all the families of the earth honor the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, who shed his precious blood at Calvary to redeem us all and set us free from the yoke of sin and iniquity. May the Lord give us a fresh revelation of the mighty redemptive power of the blood. May we worship the awesome Lamb and welcome His glorious work. He took our sins, our sicknesses, and all our sorrows. He breaks every curse. He redeems our families, and all the families on earth. Therefore, we give glory and cry out, “Worthy is the Lamb!”

Exodus 12:3, “Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: ‘On the tenth of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household.”

Luke 19:28-40, “When He had said this, He went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. And it came to pass, when He drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mountain called Olivet, that He sent two of His disciples, saying, ‘Go into the village opposite you, where as you enter you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever sat. Loose it and bring it here. And if anyone asks you, “Why are you loosing it?” thus you shall say to him, “Because the Lord has need of it.”’ So those who were sent went their way and found it just as He had said to them. But as they were loosing the colt, the owners of it said to them, ‘Why are you loosing the colt?’ And they said, ‘The Lord has need of him.’ Then they brought him to Jesus. And they threw their own clothes on the colt, and they set Jesus on him. And as He went, many spread their clothes on the road. Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen, saying:  ‘Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!’ And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, ‘Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.’ But He answered and said to them, ‘I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.’”

Galatians 3:13-14, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”, that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”

 

Part II: Austin Bombings

Thank the Lord that law enforcement officials apprehended the man terrorizing Austin these last few days, killing two and injuring several others with package bombs. We pray for those injured in the bombings and for the families of those who lost their loved ones. Bind fear and pray for God's Spirit of comfort and shalom to rest over the city of Austin. May God give safety across the nation.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”
