Good morning! We are so thankful that you have chosen to join us for worship today! God has wired us for community and connection and has given us the gift of our spiritual family. If you are new with us today, we would love to help you get connected and involved here at Calvary. Please do not hesitate to reach out and ask any questions you may have. 
Today, we are going to continue our study through the Gospel of Mark. We have come to the beginning of the last week of Jesus’ earthly life. In Mark 11, King Jesus enters the city of Jerusalem in what has been called the “triumphal procession”. What we will see is that the people all had their own ideas of the king Jesus would be, but their small ideas and superficial understanding of their needs were not definitive of the King he actually is. Our problem of sin, our disconnection from God, our eternal dilemma would not and could not be remedied in a physical governmental overthrow where temporary peace might be experienced; we needed a conquering King in the spiritual realm to go to war and make a way for everlasting peace between us and the God we have sinned against. This is what Jesus came to do! 
As we study this event today, consider the question, “Am I living in proper response to Jesus as the KING that he is, or am I living by an invented version of him that better suits my life?”  Only one of those leads to life and peace. I am praying God would put our eyes on our King and lead us triumphantly in Christ!
For the King and Kingdom!
