Crowds | Palm Sunday | Pastor Candace Cortez
Series: Crowds

Luke 19:28-40 NRSV: After he had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. When he had come near Bethphage and Bethany, at the place called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of the disciples, saying, “Go into the village ahead of you, and as you enter it you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ just say this, ‘The Lord needs it.’ ” So those who were sent departed and found it as he had told them. As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, “Why are you untying the colt?” They said, “The Lord needs it.” Then they brought it to Jesus; and after throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. As he rode along, people kept spreading their cloaks on the road. As he was now approaching the path down from the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the deeds of power that they had seen, saying, “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest heaven!” Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, order your disciples to stop.” He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out.”

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS:

  1. When looking at your life right now, do you more closely identify with the people of praise or the mob? (characterized by unbridled emotions, mindlessness, focus on people vs God, and dependent on comfort) Is there a specific moment or characterization that you need to repent for from this most recent season?
  1. When you look at the core people in your life, who are you learning and growing with, are they people of praise?
  1. What can you do this week, to more align your whole week (not just your church day) with more Jesus? Take a moment and ask God to reveal a next step to you and give you the grace needed to take it!
