Palm Sunday

As they approached Jerusalem and came to the Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, "Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away."

This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:

"Say to Daughter Zion, 'See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.'"

The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, "Hosanna to the Son of David?!"

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"

"Hosanna in the highest heaven!"

When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, "Who is this?"

The crowds answered, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee."

As we reflect today on Palm Sunday, may we constantly be reminded of this most important moment in history, that this is the very day when Jesus began his journey to the cross.

As we are bound to our homes in these unprecedented days and are unable to attend church corporately, may we allow His word to reveal to us great truths of his unconditional love, great truths that will draw us closer to Christ, the great truth that Jesus is the King of Kings.

I visited Israel last summer and I chose this picture taken in Capernaum because of the palm trees.

I love to find hidden gems that Jesus reveals time and time again through his word.

The palm branch is a symbol of victory, triumph, and eternal life.

It is no coincidence that they chose palm branches to wave boldly in the air and then lay at His feet to welcome Jesus into Jerusalem proclaiming,

"Hosanna to the Son of David!"

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"

"Hosanna in the highest heaven!" Matthew 1:9

Because our Jesus is alive and is victorious, triumphant and has offered us eternal life.

May God bless you this Palm Sunday.
