Mark 10:43-45

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the good news of Jesus with us wherever we go.

This week, we will memorize the last verse in Mark 10:43–45. Write verse 45 down a few times on a piece of paper. Then read the full passage aloud, meditating on these words from Jesus. 

“On the contrary, whoever wants to become great among you will be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you will be a slave to all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
—Mark 10:43–45

Save the image below as a lock screen for your phone so you can read these words throughout the day.

    Very different Palm Sunday for us this year. My husband was in the hospital for a heart attack but thankfully came home. We are now on a low sodium diet. My husband is a pizza, burrito eating kind of guy. It has not been an easy transition but so thankful for God saving my husband.

    I recently heard this in a message. Jesus hose a young donkey. Of course, most kings would ride in on a strong horse. Not Jesus. This is an example of how God’s Kingdom and a ways are so different from the world. What I never heard was that you can’t just take a young donkey and immediately ride on it. Jesus did. It is as if the donkey knew Jesus. The Scripture says when things are set right, the lion will lie down with the lamb. So amazing! The teaching was called:: Into Jerusalem by Tim Keller.

    Palm Sunday is a day of tension between two conflicting emotions: joy – for He is the praiseworthy Messiah, riding on a donkey over palm branches – and profound sadness – for He is also the innocent suffering Servant, heading to the cross. But note this: The passion of the Christ is bookended by praise. Praise on Palm Sunday. The triumphal entry into Jerusalem. And then Easter Sunday. Praise for the Resurrection. The empty tomb. Let us praise today- Hosanna! – with lifted hands. This coming week, let us contemplate His surrender to His Father’s will on our behalf. Then next Sunday, oh glorious day! Let us praise the King of Kings, the Savior of the world!! May no rocks rival our praise. Let us break forth in Resurrection celebration!

    “Blesses is He who comes in the Name of the Lord!” They knew the Scripture, but did they know Jesus? We share ‘my truth’ or listen to ‘your truth’, but do we KNOW Jesus, the Truth?  I have my ‘comfort box’, my ‘control box’ and my ‘worship box’, but how do I respond if Jesus acts outside of my box?  I am learning how important it is for me to study and seek to know Jesus outside of my feeble understanding and weak expectations… to listen, to learn and to be washed in the Truth that really does set me free. The ‘Calvary road’ – the way of the cross – is a long obedience! Palm Sunday… I’m so thankful that Jesus’s focus was on obedience to His Father.

    As a child I was raised Catholic.
    I have beautiful memories of Palm Sunday. The whole church would be decorated with palms everywhere and we would all receive a palm branch. I thank God now as grown-up and part of the evangelical church I understand this more and so meaningful. And I still have those visions as a child of palms everywhere. And I’m even more thankful for what Jesus did for you and I at the cross. Happy Sunday to you all my beautiful sisters.

    “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord – the King of Israel!” John 12:13
    Celebrating Palm Sunday and praying for all y’all my sisters in Christ. I’m especially lifting up those in the southeast of the U.S. where there’s so many storms bringing flooding & tornadoes. May the LORD bless & keep you and your families safe.
