ABIDIDNG SAVIOR EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN CHURCH, WESLACO, TX www.abidingsaviorwels.com [ORGANIST PLAYING INTRO TO HOSANNA, LOUD HOSANNA, ON PALM SUNDAY AND CONGREGATION BEGINS TO SING] HOSANNA, LOUD HOSANNA, THE LITTLE CHILDREN SANG; THROUGH PILLARED COURT AND TEMPLE THE LOVELY ANTHEM RANG. TO JESUS, WHO HAD BLESSED THEM, CLOSE FOLDED TO HIS BREAST, THE CHILDREN SANG THEIR PRAISES, THE SIMPLEST AND THE BEST. [MUSIC] FROM OLIVET THEY FOLLOWED MID AN EXULTANT CROWD, THE VICTOR PALM BRANCH WAVING AND CHANTING CLEAR AND LOUD. THE LORD OF SAINTS AND ANGELS RODE ON IN LOWLY STATE NOR SCORNED THAT LITTLE CHILDREN SHOULD ON HIS BIDDING WAIT. "HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST!" THAT ANCIENT SONG WE SING, FOR CHRIST IS OUR REDEEMER, THE LORD OF HEAVEN, OUR KING. OH, MAY WE EVER PRAISE HIM WITH HEART AND LIFE AND VOICE AND IN HIS ROYAL PRESENCE ETERNALLY REJOICE. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] [MUSIC] [MUSIC] [MUSIC] GRACE, MERCY, AND PEACE ARE YOURS THROUGH GOD OUR FATHER AND FROM OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST: DEAR FRIENDS: THE PORTION OF SCRIPTURE FOR OUR CONSIDERATION TODAY IS FOUND IN MATTHEW 21, BEGINNING AT THE 12TH VERSE. RATHER THAN THE GOSPEL LESSON FOR TODAY. AT THIS TIME I WOULD JUST LIKE TO REREAD THAT IRONIC QUESTION THAT JESUS' ENEMIES ASKED. "DO YOU HEAR WHAT THESE CHILDREN ARE SAYING?" FRIENDS IN JESUS: THERE'S A PASTOR I KNOW THAT TELLS A STORY ABOUT ONE HECTIC SUNDAY MORNING .. YOU SEE, HE DIDN'T LIVE RIGHT ACROSS THE PARKING LOT FROM THE CHURCH AND PARSONAGE, HE LIVED A COUPLE OF MILES AWAY. AND A LARGE FAMILY THAT THEY HAD, THEY HAD ONE EIGHT-YEAR-OLD BOY THAT HAD TROUBLE FINDING HIS BELT AND HE DID NOT WANT TO GO TO CHURCH WITHOUT BEING DRESSED APPROPRIATELY AND WEARING HIS BELT. SO HE SEARCHED AND THE FAMILY SEARCHED AND THE DAD SEARCHED AND THE TIME WAS RUNNING DOWN FOR CHURCH TO GET GOING. THE PASTOR WAS REALLY WORRIED ABOUT BEING LATE. STARTING TO GET FRUSTRATED WITH EVERYTHING GOING ON AND FINALLY THE EIGHT-YEAR- OLD TURNED TO HIS DAD AND SAID: "DAD, HAVE YOU PRAYED ABOUT IT YET?" HOW IRONIC! THE CHILD IS THE TEACHER. THE CHILD REMINDS HIS DAD IT'S TIME ... TO PRAY. ISN'T THAT EXACTLY WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT IN SCRIPTURE? SCRIPTURE MEANS WHAT IT SAYS: CHILD-LIKE FAITH. IT SHOULDN'T BE SURPRISING EVEN IF IT IS IRONIC THAT WE SEE THAT HAPPENING. THERE'S SOMETHING SIMILAR TODAY IN THESE WORDS THAT THE CHILDREN SANG "HOSANNA! BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD." THE COMING KINGDOM OF OUR FATHER DAVID AND IT'S AN IRONY FOUND HERE IN THE FACT THAT THE CHILDREN KNEW THE MESSAGE. DO YOU HEAR WHAT THESE CHILDREN ARE SAYING? THE QUESTION ASKED BY JESUS, ACTUALLY IT WOULD BE A GOOD QUESTION FOR US TO ASK. AND SO IF WE WANT TO HEAR WHAT THE CHILDREN ARE SAYING LET'S FIRST OF ALL LOOK AT THE TEXT. AND UNDERSTAND WHAT THESE CHILDREN ARE SAYING. THERE'S AN EVALUATION OF JESUS' ACTIONS HERE. BOTH BY THE CHIEF PRIESTS AND ACTUALLY BY JOHN AS THE INSPIRED WRITER OF THESE TEXTS ... "BUT WHEN THE CHIEF PRIESTS AND THE TEACHERS OF THE LAW SAW THESE WONDERFUL THINGS THAT JESUS WAS DOING ... AND WHAT DOES WONDERFUL MEAN? WHEN YOU SAY SOMETHING IS WONDERFUL, THAT MEANS REALLY GOOD ... RIGHT? YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT SOMETHING EXCELLENT, BUT LITERALLY, THE WORD WONDERFUL MEANS TO BE FILLED WITH, OF ALL THINGS, WONDER. WONDER OR AMAZEMENT. THERE WERE THINGS THAT JESUS DID, AND WHAT HE WAS DOING AT THAT TIME THAT MADE PEOPLES' JAWS DROP OPEN WITH AMAZEMENT AND WONDER. AND SURPRISE. AND EXCITEMENT. YES, THEY WERE REALLY GOOD, BUT IT WAS MORE THAN JUST THAT. THE AMAZING THING WASN'T JUST THAT TRIUMPHANT ENTRY INTO JERUSALEM WITH THE CROWD SINGING AND WAVING PALM BRANCHES. THAT WAS WONDERFUL, BUT THESE WORDS RECORDED HERE IN OUR TEXT ACTUALLY DIDN'T HAPPEN ON PALM SUNDAY. THEY HAPPENED ON MONDAY, THE DAY AFTER PALM SUNDAY. SO WONDERFUL THINGS DOESN'T INCLUDE PALM SUNDAY ENTRY. BUT IT DOES INCLUDE SOMETHING ELSE. IT INCLUDES WHAT JESUS DID. IT SAYS HERE IN OUR TEXT ... JESUS SAW MONEY CHANGERS AND HE OVERTURNED THE TABLES OF THE MONEY CHANGERS AND THE BENCHES OF THOSE SELLING DOVES. "IT IS WRITTEN," HE SAID TO THEM, "MY HOUSE WILL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER, BUT YOU ARE MAKING IT 'A DEN OF ROBBERS.' " MORE IS SAID HERE THAT GOD'S LAW REQUIRED AS PEOPLE WENT TO THE PASSOVER AND THEY JUST DIDN'T COME FROM JERUSALEM, THEY CAME TO JERUSALEM FROM ALL OVER WORLD. AND THEY ALL HAD TO SACRIFICE THERE FOR THE PASSOVER. SO IF YOU WERE COMING FROM GALILEE TO SACRIFICE FOR THE PASSOVER, YOU NEEDED TO HAVE A LAMB, A PERFECT UNBLEMISHED LAMB, BUT YOU DIDN'T TRANSPORT IT DOWN FROM GALILEE OR PALMS FROM GALILEE. WHAT DID YOU DO? YOU BOUGHT IT THERE. AND GOD'S LAW ALLOWED FOR PURCHASING THAT SACRIFICAL LAMB AT THE TEMPLE. BUT THERE WERE MONEY CHANGERS THERE. THE PRIESTS REQUIRED A PAYMENT FOR THAT SACRIFICIAL LAMB BE PAID IN THE JEWISH SHEKEL NOT IN A ROMAN CURRENCY OR COIN. SO WHAT HAPPENED? THEY COULD HIKE UP THE RATE OF EXCHANGE. NOT ONLY THAT, YOU HAD PEOPLE SELLING THAT LAMB FOR THE PASSOVER SACRIFICE ... AND IT WAS KIND OF LIKE GOING TO THE ISLAND ON SPRING BREAK AND TRYING TO BUY TWO THERE AND END UP PAYING FOUR TIMES THE AMOUNT YOU'D DO ANYWHERE ELSE AT ANY TIME ELSE. THEY WERE HIKING UP THE PRICES FOR THAT TIME. IT APPEARS THAT THE PRIESTS THEMSELVES WERE IN ON THE CUT OF THAT MONEY-MAKING VENTURE. AND SO, THESE WONDERFUL THINGS THAT JESUS DID INCLUDED DRIVING THEM OUT SAYING, MY HOUSE WILL BE A HOUSE OF PRAYER INSTEAD OF A DEN OF ROBBERS. THAT'S NOT ALL. THERE'S ADDITIONAL THINGS. THE TEXT ALSO SAYS THE BLIND AND THE LAME CAME TO HIM IN THE TEMPLE AND HE HEALED THEM. WHAT DID THAT REVEAL? IT REVEALS THE SAME THING THAT DRIVING OUT THE MONEY CHANGERS DID. IT REVEALS HIS POWER AND AUTHORITY AND DIVINITY. JESUS HAD DONE THAT THROUGHOUT HIS MINISTRY. HEALING THE BLIND AND THE LAME WAS NOTHING NEW. BUT THIS IS THE LAST TIME WE HAVE IT RECORDED FOR US. JESUS WITH THAT MIRACLE SHOWS US HIS DIVINITY. AND THEN THERE'S THE THIRD THING. AFTER MAKING PEOPLE'S JAWS DROP OPEN IN WONDER AND AMAZEMENT, THE WONDERFUL THING THAT THESE CHILDREN DID BECAUSE JESUS CALLED FORTH THEIR PRAISE. AND WHAT DID THEY DO? THIS IS MONDAY ... REMEMBER? THE DAY BEFORE THEY MARCHED, LIKE THE CHILDREN DID BEFORE OUR SERVICE, ONLY EVEN A LITTLE MORE JOYFUL THAN THAT, WAVING THEIR PALM BRANCHES AND DANCING AND SINGING: BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD! I THINK OF WHAT I DID WITH MY BROTHERS GROWING UP. THE WEEK AFTER EASTER WE HAD EMPTY EGGS AND WE HID THEM AND CONTINUED TO PLAY EASTER EGG HUNT FOR AT LEAST A WEEK. BECAUSE IT WAS FUN. IT WAS JOYFUL TO REMEMBER THAT CELEBRATION. THAT'S WHAT THE CHILDREN WERE DOING MAYBE WITH DAY-OLD PALM BRANCHES. THEY REMEMBER THE PRAISE OF THE DAY BEFORE AND THEY SANG THEM AGAIN ON MONDAY. NOT SURPRISING. NOT IRONIC AT ALL THAT THESE CHILDREN HAD COME TO FAITH AND BELIEVED WHAT THEY WERE SAYING: HOSANNA! THEY WERE TRUSTING IN HIM AS THE MESSIAH. HE SAVES US! THAT'S WHAT THAT MEANS. THE COMING KINGDOM OF OUR FATHER DAVID. HE'S THE MESSIAH! TO DIE AND PAY FOR OUR SINS. THEY WERE PRAISING HIM AT THIS PASSOVER MEAL. AT THIS PASSOVER WEEK CELEBRATION. CELEBRATING THAT PASSOVER OF THE ANGEL OF DEATH. AND THAT BLOOD OF THE LAMB. THEY REMEMBERED THOSE THINGS AND THEY CONTINUED THEIR JOY. THERE IS NO IRONY AT ALL THAT THAT MESSAGE FROM GOD WORKED FAITH IN THE HEARTS OF THESE CHILDREN. WE HAVE BEEN STUDYING IRONIES THIS LENT, ON THE WEDNESDAYS IN LENT. SO WHAT IS AN IRONY? IT'S WHEN THE END RESULT IS THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT'S EXPECTED. AND WHERE DO WE HAVE THE IRONY? ON THE OTHER SIDE. NOT THE CHILDREN, BUT IN THE LEADERS. THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS AND WHAT THEY SAID. WHEN THE CHIEF PRIESTS AND TEACHERS OF THE LAW SAW THE WONDERFUL THINGS HE DID AND THE CHILDREN SHOUTING IN TEMPLE COURTS: "HOSANNA TO THE SON OF DAVID." THEY WERE INDIGNANT! THESE WERE THE SCRIPTURE EXPERTS. AND WHAT EVENTS HAPPENED? WHEN THOSE EVENTS HAPPENED JUST LIKE GOD HAD PROMISED IN THE OLD TESTAMENT ... THOSE PROPHECIES ... WHEN THOSE HAPPENED JUST THAT WAY AND THE SAVIOR CAME AS PROMISED, THESE EXPERTS DID NOT RECOGNIZE HIM. THEY WERE EVEN ANGRY ABOUT THE CLAIMS OF THE CHILDREN THAT HE WAS THE MESSIAH. THE CHILDREN KNEW HIM AS THEIR SAVIOR, BUT THESE THEOLOGIANS DIDN'T! AND WE SEE THAT IN OUR DAY AND AGE. MAYBE THERE ARE INTELLECTUALS IN OUR SOCIETY THAT MIGHT SMIRK AT FOOLISH PEOPLE LIKE US WHO NEED TO BELIEVE IN A DISNEYLAND IN THE SKY. THEY MIGHT SAY. THE SAD REALITY OF MANY CHURCHES EVEN IN THE 21ST CENTURY IS THAT THERE ARE PASTORS AND PROFESSORS THAT DON'T BELIEVE IN JESUS ANYMORE. OR AT LEAST DON'T BELIEVE THE WAY THESE CHILDREN DID. THEY MIGHT SAY JESUS LIVED, BUT DON'T SEE HIM AS THE ONE WHO DIED ON THE CROSS TO PAY FOR SIN. AND QUESTION THE FACT THAT HE ACTUALLY PHYSICALLY ROSE FROM THE DEAD. THEY DON'T CLAIM THAT GOD CAME IN THE FLESH TO PAY FOR OUR SINS IN OUR FLESH. STILL TODAY, GOD SPELLS IT OUT CLEARLY BUT PEOPLE REFUSE TO SEE IT. DID YOU EVER SEE THAT, OR NOTICE, I HAVE SAID IT MANY TIMES, PEOPLE WILL BELIEVE JUST ABOUT ANYTHING. TALK ABOUT REINCARNATION: "I WAS NAPOLEON IN A FORMER LIFE." "I WAS JOAN OF ARC IN A FORMER LIFE." OH! WHY NOT? PEOPLE WILL BELIEVE IT. AN ANGEL APPEARED IN THE BARK OF A TREE AND HAD A MESSAGE FOR ME. WHY NOT BELIEVE IT THAT SPECIAL REVELATION HAD COME? GOD SPEAKS TO ME IN HOW I FEEL. I KNOW HE'S WITH ME BECAUSE I FEEL HE'S WITH ME TODAY! WHY NOT? BUT ... TELL SOMEONE THAT GOD CAME TO EARTH AND WALKED THIS EARTH SO THAT HE COULD PAY FOR OUR SINS BY DYING IN OUR PLACE WHEN WE DESERVED TO DIE. UH-UH. NO! NOT THAT! "I WON'T BELIEVE THAT", WE HEAR FROM PEOPLE. WHY? BECAUSE THAT WOULD MEAN THAT'S THE REASON OUR SAVIOR DIED ON THE CROSS AND THAT WE HAVE SINNED AGAINST HIM AND WE DESERVED TO PAY THE PENALTY THAT HE DID IN OUR PLACE! AND PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO ADMIT THAT WHAT I DO IS WRONG. THEY WOULD RATHER GO WITH A SITUATIONAL ETHICS. THAT RIGHT AND WRONG DEPEND ON A GIVEN SITUATION OR A GIVEN SET OF CIRCUMSTANCES. AND THEY DENY THAT GOD HAS SET UP MORAL ABSOLUTES. AND THEY DO THAT BECAUSE IN EFFECT, THEY ADMIT THAT GOD HAD TO SEND THE SON TO PAY FOR OUR SINS. TO NOT DO THAT WOULD BE ACTUALLY ADMITTING THAT THEY'RE . . . WRONG! UNFORTUNATELY, THE EXPERTS COME DOWN ON THAT OPINION TOO OFTEN. BUT SIMPLE CHRISTIANS WHO WILL LISTEN TO GOD'S WORD; SIMPLE CHRISTIANS WILL SEE JESUS WITH THE FAITH OF A CHILD. TO RECOGNIZE THAT THIS SAVIOR CAME TO GIVE US PEACE. AND THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE PEACE IS TO HAVE OUR GUILT REMOVED. ALL OF THOSE WRONGS WE HAVE DONE - WASHED AWAY! SO WE DON'T FEEL THAT BURDEN OF [GUILT] ISN'T TO WASH IT AWAY OR DROWN IT OUT WITH SOME OTHER ISSUE OR THING. THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE PEACE IS FOR GOD HIMSELF TO HAVE MADE PAYMENT. AND THE HUMBLE CHRISTIAN WILL RECOGNIZE: I'VE REBELLED AGAINST GOD REPEATEDLY IN MY LIFE. AND THE SIMPLE CHRISTIAN WILL RECOGNIZE THAT JESUS CAME INTO JERUSALEM IN ORDER TO PAY FOR THOSE SINS. THEY WERE ALL WASHED AWAY AND TAKEN CARE OF. THEY WILL UNDERSTAND THESE GLORIOUS THINGS. THAT JESUS RODE INTO JERUSALEM AND THE NEXT DAY HE CLEANED THE TEMPLE. HE HEALED THE SICK AND THE BLIND. HE INSPIRED THE CHILDREN TO SING THEIR SONGS OF PRAISE AND COUNTLESS GENERATIONS TO FOLLOW WOULD SING AND REPEAT IT AS WELL: HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST. THESE ARE WONDERFUL THINGS! AND DO YOU HEAR WHAT THESE CHILDREN ARE SAYING? THROUGH FAITH. I HOPE YOU DO UNDERSTAND THESE WONDERFUL THINGS. AND WHEN YOU DO UNDERSTAND THEM, UNDERSTAND THESE WONDERFUL THINGS, JOIN THEM. JOIN THE CHILDREN IN THEIR PRAISES. LET ME GO BACK TO THAT QUESTION. "DO YOU HEAR WHAT THESE CHILDREN ARE SAYING?" OFTEN TIMES THAT'S SPOKEN AS A REBUKE. I'M GOING TO TELL THIS STORY ABOUT THIS FAMILY THAT LIVES IN TEXAS. WE LIVE IN TEXAS. THINK ABOUT THIS ONE FAMILY. SOME LIVE IN COLLEGE STATION. THE OTHERS LIVE IN AUSTIN. AND SO THEY GO TO VISIT EACH OTHER AND THE COUSINS FROM COLLEGE STATION TEACH THE FOLKS LIVING IN AUSTIN, WHO JUST HAPPEN TO WORK FOR UT, THOSE LONGHORNS. THEY TEACH THAT 18-MONTH-OLD SON IN THAT HOUSE TO SAY: "GIG 'EM AGS". AND THEY ROLL ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING EVERY TIME HE SAYS IT AND WHILE HIS BROTHER'S IN TOWN IF THAT 18-MONTH-OLD THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY WHILE COMPANY WAS THERE, IT PROBABLY DOESN'T STOP WHEN THE COMPANY LEAVES. IT PROBABLY CONTINUES. AND CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT DAD TAKING THE 18-MONTH-OLD SON ON THE CAMPUS AND HE STARTS TO SHOUT IN FRONT OF ALL THE LONGHORNS: "GIG 'EM AGS"! AND EVERYONE SAYS: "DO YOU HEAR WHAT YOUR SON IS SAYING?" THAT'S A REBUKE. THAT'S HOW THE LEADERS ASKED JESUS. THERE WAS A WORD OF REBUKE. DID YOU HEAR WHAT THEY SAID? IT WAS ALMOST LIKE THEY WERE EXPECTING JESUS TO BE SO EMBARRASSED THAT THEY WERE CALLING HIM THE MESSIAH THAT THEY WERE EXPECTING HIM TO SAY: THAT'S ENOUGH OF THAT. STOP SAYING THAT I'M THE MESSIAH. TIME TO BE QUIET KIDS. BUT NO, JESUS DIDN'T ANSWER THAT WAY, OF COURSE. WHAT DID HE SAY? YES! I HEAR WHAT THEY ARE SAYING. AND HAVEN'T YOU READ IN SCRIPTURE THE WORDS THAT HE QUOTES? FROM THE LIPS OF CHILDREN AND INFANTS LORD, YOU HAVE CALLED FORTH YOUR PRAISE. NOT ONLY DID JESUS HEAR WHAT THEY WERE SAYING. HE APPROVED IT. IT'S A QUOTE FROM PSALM 8. IT DESCRIBED THE LORD'S MESSIAH COMING TO THIS EARTH TO ACCOMPLISH THE LORD'S WILL. IT DECLARED THAT THESE CHILDREN WERE SAYING THAT JESUS IS THE MESSIAH. AND HE AGREED WITH IT. HE ENDORSED IT. AND WHEN JESUS SAID THAT PSALM 8 HIS ENEMIES WERE LEFT SPEECHLESS! THEY COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT HE WOULD SAY SUCH A THING. JESUS TAUGHT THEM THAT THESE LITTLE CHILDREN DID HAVE FAITH AND THROUGH FAITH UNDERSTOOD THESE WONDERFUL THINGS. AND EVEN THOUGH RIGHT AFTER HE TAUGHT THEM THAT MESSAGE HE LEFT TOWN. JESUS LEFT TOWN RIGHT AFTER HE SAID THOSE THINGS. HE GAVE HIS ENEMIES A CHANCE TO CONSIDER THOSE WONDERFUL THINGS. GOD ORDAINS PRAISE FROM THE LIPS OF CHILDREN. LET ME TAKE YOU BACK TO THAT PASTOR AND HIS SON AND THE BELT. GOD CAUSES AMAZING THINGS TO COME OUT OF OUR CHILDREN'S MOUTHS. THROUGH BAPTISM. THROUGH THE GOSPEL MESSAGE THAT BROUGHT THEM TO FAITH THAT THEY HEAR IN CHURCH AND SUNDAY SCHOOL. CHILDREN SAY SOME WONDERFUL AND AMAZING THINGS. THINGS OF COMFORT AND TRUTH. IF YOU HAVE A CHILD THAT GOES TO GRANDMA'S FUNERAL AND SAYS: WHY ARE YOU CRYING, DAD? SHE'S IN HEAVEN. WHAT AN AMAZING THING FOR A CHILD TO SAY! BUT WHY WITH THAT STORY OF THE PASTOR, WHY DIDN'T THE PASTOR SAY A PRAYER? GOD HELP US RESOLVE THE SITUATION WITH THE BELT BEFORE I'M LATE FOR CHURCH. I WOULD SUBMIT THAT WHAT THAT PASTOR DID PROBABLY IS SOMETHING THAT WE DO WITH OUR PRAYER LIVES. WE REALLY LIMIT GOD. GOD'S NOT GOING TO GET INVOLVED IN SOMETHING SO TRIVIAL. DID YOU EVER HESITATE TO PRAY TO GOD BECAUSE IT'S NOT THAT BIG OF A DEAL? IT DOESN'T MATTER TO HIM. AND YET THIS CHILD SAYS WE SHOULD PRAY ABOUT IT. HE SAID GOD SAYS IT MATTERS AND HE LISTENS TO ALL OF OUR PRAYERS WE SAY. DON'T LIMIT YOUR PRAYERS TO GOD BY THE THINGS THAT YOU THINK GOD WANTS TO DEAL WITH. CAST ALL YOUR CARES UPON HIM. LIKE A CHILD. AND WHERE CAN WE GET THAT FAITH OF THE LITTLE CHILD? ONLY IN THE GOSPEL. FOUND IN THE WORD. FOUND IN THE SACRAMENT. THAT OUR SAVIOR DIED. THAT HE ROSE FOR US. THAT HE WASHED OUR SINS AWAY. THAT WE ARE FORGIVEN. JESUS PROMISES TO WORK FOR US. TO BE WITH US. AND TO CARE FOR US AND TO HELP US IN EVERY TROUBLE AND THESE TRUTHS STRENGTHEN OUR HEART OF FAITH. THEY STRENGTHEN OUR FAITH WE ACTUALLY JOIN THE CHILDREN IN PRAISING GOD WITH THEM. WE ACTUALLY JOIN THE CHILDREN IN PRAISING WE PRAISE GOD WITH THE CHILDREN BY SHOWING THE PEOPLE AROUND US WHY WE THINK EASTER IS SUCH A SPECIAL DAY. TAKE AN OPPORTUNITY THIS WEEK, WHETHER YOU ARE STILL HERE IN THE VALLEY, OR YOU'RE ON YOUR WAY NORTH, TO TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS - ANYBODY ELSE AROUND YOU, WHY YOU'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO CELEBRATING EASTER. AND YOU ARE CELEBRATING THE RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD AND YOUR ETERNITY WITH GOD FOREVER. YOU UNDERSTAND NOW THESE WONDERFUL THINGS ONLY WITH THE HEART OF FAITH. AND SO WITH THAT HEART OF FAITH ASK YOURSELF AND THINK ABOUT THAT QUESTION: JOIN THOSE CHILDREN IN PRAISING GOD. HERE IS THE QUESTION: DO YOU HEAR WHAT THE CHILDREN ARE SAYING? YES FRIENDS, JOIN THEM IN THAT SONG OF PRAISE. AMEN. PLEASE STAND. THE PEACE OF GOD IS A WONDERFUL THING THAT COMES FROM GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST THAT WILL KEEP YOU IN FAITH IN HIM THROUGHOUT THIS LIFE AND IN ETERNITY. AMEN.
