Welcome to the JellyTelly 5 Minute Family Devotional! Jesus: Messiah, Teacher, King Jesus Enters Jerusalem This week’s memory verse is Acts 16:31. And they said,
“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.” So Jesus and his disciples,
plus lots of other people from all over Israel, headed to Jerusalem to celebrate passover. Many of them had heard about Jesus
and when he entered Jerusalem, a huge crowd came out laying down their coats
and palm branches shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes
in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!” That’s like what we do in church right before Easter! It is Ian! We remember that event every year on Palm Sunday. It sounds like the crowd knows Jesus is the Messiah! But it also sounds like they think he’s gonna be a king just like King David. I’m not sure they understand about this new kind of kingdom. No, they don’t. Of course this kind of scene is really going to attract
the attention of the Romans. So the Pharisees and the Sadducees
know they have to do something about Jesus – and quick. Let’s say the memory verse together! Acts 16:31 And they said,
“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.” Let’s talk. What did we learn? Where did Jesus and his disciples go? What kind of animal did Jesus ride? How do we live out what we’ve just learned? The people lined the streets to praise Jesus. What are ways we can praise Jesus as a family this week? Let’s pray together. What do we want to thank God for today? What do we want to ask God for today? Keep learning! Get a free printable activity everyday
