Our Response To Christ: Discipleship, Depth And Devotion.

Matthew 20:29-21:17
Four times, Jesus is called ‘the Son of David’(30-31, 9,15). Christ is greater than David. He is David’s ‘Lord’(22:41-46). Christ is not only ‘the Son of David’. He is also the Son of God (Romans 1:3-4). We rejoice with the Psalms of David. We rejoice even more in the Gospel of Christ. Our response to Christ is to be marked by discipleship, depth and devotion. Discipleship- The blind men ‘received their sight and followed Him’(34). They did not receive their sight and then forget about Him. Grace is to be followed by gratitude. Those who have received grace are to give themselves to the Lord in gratitude. Depth- The crowds were enthusiastic (8-9) but superficial (27:20-23). Pray for depth, a true and lasting response to Christ. Devotion- Pray that the spirit of praise will overcome the spirit of pride (15).
