A False Hope 6/5/2020

16 The king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. 17 The war horse is a false hope for salvation, and by its great might it cannot rescue.

Psalm 33:16-17

As you start the day, confess what warriors and war horses in which your default trust rests. Consider that the true king, Jesus, does not need an army to save you, only his word. His word toppled those who sought to arrest him, but Jesus placed himself there at the Mount of Olives to pray late on that Thursday night because he knew Judas Iscariot would know precisely where to find him and betray him there (John 18:2).

Jesus is called the Good Shepherd who laid down his life for his sheep in John 10. He laid down his life in order to save us (Hebrews 12:2).

Ask the Lord to increase your faith in Him as your savior and King today and join us this Sunday as we study the significance of the arrest of Jesus in Luke 22:39-53. Invite a friend!
