Sunday Message: The Triumphal Entry

What was Jesus up to on that first Palm Sunday? It seems to me he was making quite the production of it. “Go into the town, get a donkey, tell them, the Lord needs it.” And the people welcomed him with palm branches and cloaks. And you know we are pretty sure that there was another parade that day. This one, on the other side of town, was led by the Roman Governor Pilate but he wasn’t riding a little donkey, he was on a battle horse with a battalion of men proclaiming the power of Rome. Let’s come together this Sunday to witness the power of this story and lay our own cloaks as our display of our allegiance to Jesus.
