Matthew 21:1-11 – FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS
The disciples followed the Lord’s directions for “Palm Sunday”.
We should follow the Lord’s directions because:
THE LORD’S DIRECTIONS ARE SPECIFIC – Vss. 1-3
Jesus told the disciples where to go, what to do, and what to say.
Through the Word of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we too will receive specific instructions. Romans 12:2, John 16:12-14, Psalm 32:8
THE LORD’S DIRECTIONS ARE SCRIPTURAL – Vss. 4-5
Jesus was out to fulfill Scripture and to do God’s will. John 4:34, 9:4, Matthew 5:18
We should do the same! Mark 13:31
THE LORD’S DIRECTIONS ARE SURE – Vss. 6-7
The disciples found things to be just as Jesus told them. We count on God’s directions as accurate. Mark 11:1-6
THE LORD’S DIRECTIONS ARE SPECIAL – Vss. 8-11
Because Jesus directions were followed the disciples were part of a great day and a day when God’s word was fulfilled. Whenever we follow God’s directions, the results will be special. Sinners will be challenged and saved. Saints will be edified.
