Thought for The Day – Saturday 20th February

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”

The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”

Matthew 21: 10 – 11

Many people were gathered in Jerusalem for a religious festival, so there were a lot of people gathered in Jerusalem. The crowds were people who had been with Jesus before this entry into Jerusalem, and would continue to follow him afterwards. They knew who Jesus was and wanted to share this with all those gathered in Jerusalem. They were filled with joy to share this joy with all those gathered there.

Prayer: Loving God, we give you thanks for the amazing work you have done for us and for this world. We might lose sight of your work when things go wrong, and don’t go how we want them to. Even in those times, may we remember how amazing you are and continue to share about you with this world and shout it out with joy. Amen.

Action: Share about Jesus with joy, so that people can learn who he is.
