Praise Him

‘…[I]f these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out’ ” (Luke 18: 40).

The Lord spoke these words as He wrote triumphantly into Jerusalem while the crowds shouted, “Hosanna,” waved palm branches, and threw down their cloaks before Him. The Pharisees were offended at this public recognition of Jesus’ kingship and the crowd’s worshipful praise.

The reference implicit in the statement is to Psalm 150 “Let All Things Praise the Lord”:

Praise the Lord!
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty firmament…
Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet;
Praise Him with the lute and harp…
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord” (Ps. 150: 1, 3, and 6).

Lord Jesus, as the disciples did on the day You rode into Jerusalem, we lift Your Name on high. For all the mighty works You have done, we praise You. For Your mercy, we cry out in gratitude. For Your resurrection, we shout aloud with joy.

Fill our hearts to overflowing, Lord, that our tongues be not silent when You call on us to speak. May we bear witness for You to this generation.

Hosanna in the highest!

Amen

Have a blessed Easter!
