Shouting for God

This Sunday is Palm Sunday, when the people gathered as Jesus entered Jerusalem, and shouted and cheered as Jesus rode by.

Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29

The Lord Is Always Merciful

118 Tell the Lord
how thankful you are,
because he is kind
and always merciful.

Let Israel shout,
“God is always merciful!”

19 Open the gates of justice!
I will enter and tell the Lord
how thankful I am.

20 Here is the gate of the Lord!
Everyone who does right
may enter this gate.

21 I praise the Lord
for answering my prayers
and saving me.
22 The stone that the builders
tossed aside
has now become
the most important stone.

23 The Lord has done this,
and it is amazing to us.
24 This day belongs to the Lord!
Let’s celebrate
and be glad today.
25 We’ll ask the Lord to save us!
We’ll sincerely ask the Lord
to let us win.

26 God bless the one who comes
in the name of the Lord!
We praise you from here
in the house of the Lord.

27 The Lord is our God,
and he has given us light!
Start the celebration!
March with palm branches
all the way to the altar.

28 The Lord is my God!
I will praise him and tell him
how thankful I am.

29 Tell the Lord
how thankful you are,
because he is kind
and always merciful.

If Jesus were to ride past today, what would you be shouting?  What praise would you have to bring him?  Let’s shout out our praise to him.

Let’s tell him today what we are thankful for…
