“Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands. Wild animals will say ‘Thank you!’ —the coyotes and the buzzards— Because I provided water in the desert, rivers through the sun-baked earth, [and] drinking water for the people…”

Luke 15.8-10 (The Message)
“Imagine a woman who has ten coins and loses one. Won’t she light a lamp and scour the house, looking in every nook and cranny until she finds it? And when she finds it you can be sure she’ll call her friends and neighbors: ‘Celebrate with me! I found my lost coin!’ Count on it—that’s the kind of party God’s angels throw every time one lost soul turns to God.”

“The…huge crowd that had arrived for the Feast heard that Jesus was entering Jerusalem. They broke off palm branches and went out to meet him. And they cheered: ‘Hosanna! Blessed is [the one] who comes in God’s name!…’ Jesus got a young donkey and rode it, just as the Scripture has it: ‘No fear, Daughter Zion: See how your [leader] comes, riding a donkey’s colt.’”

Maundy Thursday (March 24)

Luke 24.1-6 (The Living Bible)
“Very early on Sunday morning [the women] took ointments to the tomb—and found that the huge stone covering the entrance had been rolled aside. So they went in—but the Lord Jesus’ body was gone. They stood there puzzled, trying to think what could have happened to it. Suddenly two men appeared before them, clothed in shining robes…Then the men asked, “Why are you looking in a tomb for someone who is alive? He isn’t here! He has come back to life again!”
