Saved… Because of Jesus
Palm Sunday is a time in which the Christian Church celebrates Jesus as the “Blessed one who comes in the Name of the Lord”. On that first Palm Sunday there was celebration in the streets of Jerusalem because of the anticipation of what Jesus as Messiah would do. He had come to free the captives and to liberate the people from the oppressor, but not in a way that was expected. Soon the cries of “Hosanna” turned to “Crucify” and Palm Sunday gave way to Good Friday. This Sunday we too will sing “Hosanna” and along with the children and youth of our congregation celebrate Jesus as our Messiah and King. But now we know why! He comes to free the captives from sin and to undo death through his cross and resurrection. And one day he will come again to the shouts of praise.
