KEY VERSEMatthew 21:9 (Crowd to Jesus)
Jesus was in the center of the procession, and the people all around him were shouting, “Praise God for the Son of David! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Praise God in highest heaven!”

I am here! I am ready and willing to help you and save you. I am the one you have been waiting for. Put your trust in me. You get to choose who you trust today. Choose me over all the other options. I am what you have been searching for, so there’s no need to look anywhere else.

My presence shakes people up. With me, there is a change. There is a new way of life. I address the darkness straight on. Though existing without me is empty and dark, it feels comfortable. But don’t settle for comfort. Desire adventure. Don’t be distracted by fear or doubt or being content. Push that aside and cling to me. A revolution in your heart is coming! Get ready for it. I bring a complete life change. Welcome me and all I want to do. I will save you. Surrender your will and invite me to lead you.

Think of one miraculous thing Jesus has already done in your life. Think of something only he can do in your life in the future. Take time to welcome him into every area of your life.
