Good morning! Welcome to Faith Chapel on this Palm Sunday! I am expecting another great day in the presence of the Lord and with you, my family! Pastor Bob is recovering from his rotator cuff surgery and has been doing well! Thank you so much for your prayers!
Today – Palm Sunday…is the day, taken from the Gospels, where a whole city threw a parade for Jesus. But the difference in this parade from the ones you and I might attend is that this parade had only one ‘float’ as its main attraction…the entrance of Jesus. As Jesus rode into the city, the people threw Palm branches in anticipation of His coming. This day marked a time of celebration where   Jesus was worshiped and praised. And, although we know this – the importance of this day and this celebration sometimes goes  unnoticed. The significance isn’t really grasped. I think that too  often, we get to Palm Sunday and sort of take a “Wow! Can you believe it’s Palm Sunday already?! Easter is next week” approach. When really – this day, this entrance, this celebration marks the beginning of Holy Week and the events that lead to Friday, Christ’s death on the cross. So this day is bittersweet – even as we celebrate his arrival…
This morning we are going to take a look at the Paradox of Palm Sunday – and what we can learn about Jesus, and ourselves!
Hosanna—blessed is HE who comes in the name of the Lord!
