Today’s devotion is based on Matthew 21:5, “Look, your king is coming to you, humble, and mounted on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey”
This virus has shown us the very real limitations we all have. It shows our common frailty as human beings, and our utter dependence on a saving power and help outside of ourselves. Life is not ours to control.
In the person of Christ, God has already come into a perishing world to be its Saviour, and his saving help is bigger and far more powerful than anything – even Coronavirus, and even death itself. For through his own death Jesus has brought life to the world. Through his shed blood, God has forgiven you all your sins, so that nothing will ever be able to separate you from the love of God or his saving help in Christ Jesus. Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your saving help for the world from the highest heaven. Keep us safe in your care, close to your Word, and strong in faith, so that we can joyfully proclaim the hope we have to others and sing your praise forever. Amen.
