Preparing for Palm Sunday

Preparing for Palm Sunday

This coming Sunday is Palm Sunday, the day we remember the coming of Christ into Jerusalem to begin the Passion Week. I want to encourage you to read the account of Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem and the events that transpired surrounding it. Over the next couple of days, take a few minutes to read Matthew 21:1-11 and Luke 19:28-44 which describe Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem. Consider how the chant of the crowds changed from “Hosanna to the Son of David; Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest!” to “Crucify Him! Crucify Him” in just a few days. Ask the Lord to make your heart sensitive to what Christ endured to redeem you.
