Jesus enters Jerusalem where we see the expectations of the people and God’s exceptions of Him collide.

We cannot enter the kingdom of God with our own abilities, our religious practices or our good works. It’s just not possible. A dead person cannot resurrect themselves. The same is true of a spiritually dead person. Only God can give new life. So then, just as Nicodemus needed to be born again spiritually then, every person born physically today also needs to experience spiritual birth from God to enter the Kingdom of God.

This helpless little baby born in a manger is the Lord God Almighty, who came not just to die for you, but to show you a whole new way to live as your loving Lord: To help you walk in way of truth, in the way of peace, in the way of righteousness and in the way love.

Jesus came to be one of us so He could be just like us, but without sin. Jesus came to be one of us so He could offer His life for us. Jesus came to be with us so He could initiate a relationship with us. Jesus came to bless us over and over again with His grace and truth. Jesus came to us to make the Father known to us.

Jesus is far greater than any description we might give him. No, He wants us to know that… Jesus is the eternal Word of God who shows us exactly what God is like – for He Himself is God. Jesus is the Creator of the World, who created you to know Him and be restored to complete fellowship with Him. Jesus is the Light of the World, who has come to rescue you from the darkness of your sin and give you abundant and eternal life with Him.

God’s grace doesn’t just rescue you from your destructive and hopeless past, His grace gives you a whole new way to live. And the good news is that just how God’s grace brings us salvation, God’s grace helps us live by grace.

When you believe in Jesus you are no longer an object of God’s wrath, but an object of God’s mercy. You will never be separated from life with God. You will enjoy a new way of life with God, and your future will be secure with Christ forever.

The good news of the kingdom is that God favor’s those who are lowly in heart. It is this poverty of spirit, this conscious awareness of unworthiness before God, that opens the floodgates of God’s mercy. For when we’re totally honest and confess we are indeed sinful and in need of God, this is where blessing begins.

Once you believe in Jesus’ work for you in his death, burial and resurrection, your faith in Jesus instantly changes your standing before God. This is why the gospel is of first importance to us now as believers. It’s full of good news. We rest in that good news and we want to share that good news.

If Jesus’ spirit of grace is controlling the spirit within you, then no matter what you face in life, you’ll be all right. Think about this from Paul’s perspective. Even in prison, where everything seems to be against him, he has joy and peace, and is above it all because the grace of the Lord Jesus is with his spirit. He is thankful. He is not envious of other people’s success. He doesn’t complain. He is free from the pull of life’s ambitions. He’s has peace. And He is content.
