Sermons about Palm Sunday
Jesus enters Jerusalem to a kingly welcome, but warns that only those who "hate" their life in this world will find eternal life.
This past Sunday marked the first day of the last week of Jesus' earthly ministry. This sermon explores the beginning of this famous week; the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem; the expectations of the people in regard to His entry; the significance of His entry; and the nature of His entry.
Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey – a symbol of peace, but he will return on a White Horse prepared for battle. Rev 19:11- “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.”
The true Mission of the Messiah, and how it surpassed all expectations.
Is it possible to really miss the tension, trauma, tragedy, travesty and truth of the events surrounding the cross? The media bombards us with vicious acts and horrendous events that may numb us to the real pain that real people are suffering. We become desensitized to the agony real individuals are really feeling. Sadly, we have even become desensitized to the genuine agony our Savior endured those final hours before His death.
We have to take the journey to the cross with Jesus and choose to lay down our lives and love others before we can truly experience Easter.
