Sunday mornings are like game day for children’s ministry. Just like any good coach, gather your team of volunteers for a pre-game pep talk. Answer any questions about the curriculum and ask for prayer requests. Then read the following devotion to kick the morning off:
Promises. We’ve all made them. And chances are, we’ve probably broken some along the way. When Jesus entered Jerusalem on the back of a donkey, the people in the crowd cried out, “Hosanna!” which literally means, “Save!” The Messiah, the Savior, the one God had promised to send to rescue all who believe, had come. Jesus wouldn’t fulfill this promise through power and might but by laying down his life for the sin of the world. Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and the recognition by those in the crowd of who He was is a reminder to us that God is both a promise maker and a promise keeper. When He says He will do something, it’s as good as done. So no matter what happens, no matter what life may throw at us, when we choose to follow God, we can always put our trust in Him. [Bottom Line] Whatever happens, remember God keeps His promises.
