Free 5 minute Kid’s Devotional, One Year Bible Study – October 13, Mark 11, “Triumphant Entry”


This free one year kid’s devotional study thru the Bible is designed to hit the highlights, provide practical application and requires no preparation. If you have a little more time, I encourage you to read the whole section of scripture (Mark 11 ) while we focus in on just a few verses in 5 minutes.

Background: Mark writes to involve the reader in the intensity of the miraculous life of Christ. He focuses more on what Jesus does than what He says, especially His service and sacrifice.

Jesus’ whole life was directed toward His final destiny with the cross.  So it was that He turned His face towards Jerusalem.  At the beginning of Passover week He and His disciples entered Jerusalem.

Ask the children…

What did the people do as Jesus entered into Jerusalem?

“Many in the crowd spread their garments on the road ahead of him, and others spread leafy branches they had cut in the fields.” (Mark 11:8 )

What did the people shout?

“Jesus was in the center of the procession, and the people all around him were shouting,’Praise God![a]Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord! 10 Blessings on the coming Kingdom of our ancestor David! Praise God in highest heaven!'” (Mark 11:9, 10)

The people recognized that Jesus was indeed the long awaited King.  And so they greeted Him with palm branches and shouts of praise like they would a King.  Indeed, this is what Jesus deserved because He was a King come from heaven.

Ask your children if they treat Jesus like a King?  Do they daily give praise to their King and shout out His praises?  Just like He came into Jerusalem, so Jesus has come into each of our hearts.  He is worthy of our praise.  Take some time to shout out the praises of Jesus.
