Today marks the second day of Holy Week, and the second day that Jesus was in Jerusalem. And our focus for today’s devotional is Christ teaching and debating the religious leaders on His authenticity. That of being fully God, fully man.
Our scripture for today comes from: Luke and Matthew
When Jesus entered the temple courts, he began to drive out those who were selling. “It is written,” he said to them, “ ‘My house will be a house of prayer’; but you have made it ‘a den of robbers.’”
Every day he was teaching at the temple. But the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the leaders among the people were trying to kill him. Yet they could not find any way to do it, because all the people hung on his words. —Luke 19:45-47
Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question, saying, "What do you think about the Christ? Whose son is he?" They said to him, "The son of David." He said to them, "How is it then that David, in the Spirit, calls him Lord, saying, "'The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet'? If then David calls him Lord, how is he his son?" And no one was able to answer him a word, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions.
Great Lord and God, we thank you that you left us with your word of truth, your word of confidence, your words to ponder and consider, and use daily in our lives as we too are challenged by many in our confidence and trust in you.
Guid us this day as we continue to remember all you have done for us, all that you would go through and not give up and just because your love for us was so great and so amazing.
We now ask this and commit this day to you in all ways and in all things, in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Be sure to check back tomorrow and every day through Easter Sunday for a new daily devotional, as together we walk the this time of remembrance of our Saviors gift to us.
