Κύριος Notes

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name, in earth and sky and sea.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty,
God in three persons, blessed Trinity.

Scripture Reflection:Luke 19
35They brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks on the colt and put Jesus on it. 36As he went along, people spread their cloaks on the road.
37When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: 38"Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"

The thoughts of the crowd of disciples that day just intrigues me...what were they thinking? Why did they choose this moment to honor you Lord Jesus? What was it that sparked this praise? It all connected for the disciples: the site...maybe of a healed person walking down the road that day, with the fact that you were entering Jerusalem, and all of the other miracles that you had done...all combined to create this spontaneous expression of praise.

Lord Jesus how often is there spontaneous expressions of praise...that just come out of me for what you have done...for the impact of change that you had on my life....for the blessings that you have given to me. Lord Jesus there is reason to praise...there is reason to get excited and to be thankful for the way that you have intervened, protected, sustained and encouraged though out this journey.

There is reason to praise You this morning Lord Jesus...You continue your work in my life, you continue your call on my life, and you continue to give strength for the task at hand.

Holy, holy, holy!
Merciful and mighty,
God in three persons, blessed Trinity.
