Palm Sunday is always a good day. It is the Sunday we are reminded that Jesus entered Jerusalem accompanied by a tremendous crowd. With great joy, they shouted, “Hosanna to the Son of David” and “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David.” But their enthusiasm was like that of a political rally. They misunderstood Jesus’ mission. They thought He was coming to free the Jews from the oppressive taxation and occupation of the Roman government. He came to die for sins of the people, including you and me. That’s why I am preaching from Psalm 51 on Sunday morning. It’s a Psalm of David where he describes the pain of sin, but also the way to be forgiven of sin. I trust you will be blessed.
Being some people with you to church on Easter. This is a great way to introduce a lost person to Jesus and the centrality of the Christian message. I will preach a sermon entitled “Is There Any Hope?” Pray for me that I will deliver a message of truth and grace about the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Pray for this community, that the mighty rushing wind of the Holy Spirit and the power of the gospel would penetrate the darkness that shrouds us. Jesus says the fields are white for the harvest. Let’s be the workers in the field!
