Sunday mornings can go at a fast and furious pace. If we aren’t strategic, we can miss key relational connections. Gather your team of volunteers for a brief gathering before the serving begins. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion before praying for the day:
When Jesus entered Jerusalem, riding on a donkey, the people recognized how special he was with shouts of “Hosanna!” They knew Jesus was worthy of praise! They honored Him by lining the road with their cloaks and waving palm branches. Jesus was the long–awaited Savior. But He wouldn’t save them through military might and power. Jesus would sacrifice Himself by laying down His life, the ultimate sacrifice, for His friends. We can praise Jesus because He is our good friend. Who is your friend? [Bottom Line] Jesus is my friend.
