Palm Sunday

 

A week before his death, Jesus made a historic entry into the city of Jerusalem. In doing this, he fulfilled prophecy concerning the Messiah.  As was the case on that first “Palm Sunday,” Jesus still does not ride into our lives as a conquering general, forcing his will upon us. Instead he chooses to come in peace, for he is the Prince of Peace.  He did not come as a warrior, but as the Lamb of God. He did not come to shed blood, but to lay down his life as a ransom for many.  As we enter Holy Week, the days between Palm Sunday and Resurrection Day, find some time to meditate and consider the love Jesus has expressed for you. Remember that in Christ Isaiah 53 is fulfilled. He truly was wounded for our transgressions.
