    CALL TO WORSHIP: MATTHEW 21:1-11

    (Donna Lovett)

     

    As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, "Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me.  If anyone says anything to you, tell him that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.” This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:



    "Say to the Daughter of Zion,

    'See, your king comes to you,

    gentle and riding on a donkey,

    on a colt, the foal of a donkey.'"



    The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt, placed their cloaks on them, and Jesus sat on them. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of Him and those that followed shouted,



    "Hosanna to the Son of David!"

    "Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!"

    Hosanna in the highest!"



    When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, "Who is this?"

    The crowds answered, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee."

     

    INVOCATION

    (Russ Lovett)

     

    PSALM 118

    (Joel Heald and Family)

     

    Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.

    Let Israel say: "His love endures forever."

    Let the house of Aaron say: “His love endures forever.”

    Let those who fear the Lord say: “His love endures forever.”

    Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter and give thanks to the Lord.

    I will give you thanks, for You answered me; You have become my salvation.

    The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone;

    the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.

    This is the day the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.

    Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.

    The Lord is God, and He has made His light shine upon us.

    You are my God, and I will give You thanks; You are my God, and I will exalt You.

    Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.

     

    SONG: GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS

    (Brian Allen)

     

    EPISTLE READING: PHILIPPIANS 2:5-11

    (Bill, Kirstyn Bahr and Family)

     

    Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:

    Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God

    something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing,

    taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

    And being found in appearance as a man,

    He humbled Himself and became obedient to death —

    even death on a cross!

    Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place

    and gave Him the name that is above every name,

    that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,

    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

    and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,

    to the glory of God the Father.

    TRANSFORMATION QUESTIONS FOR THE FAMILY

    Now how do you feel after Lazarus comes back from the dead?


    What is the hardest part about waiting?

    What makes something easy to wait for?
    What makes something hard to wait for?


    During this time of quarantine, what can we do differently to better wait on God?

    How will that change our time together?
    How could it make it easier to be away from our friends and family?

Wonderful, Profound Biblical Teaching for The Masses

As a student at ONU, I regularly attended College Church University Ave (at that time University Campus) under the regular preaching of one of my favourite professors, Dr. Quanstrom. This is truly some of the best biblical teaching I have ever heard. Dr. Q engages with the biblical text at the deepest theological depths, but in such a way that all people, regardless of education, can understand, not only on a cognitive level but also on an experiential level.
