Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter that begins the Holy Week. It is the day that we remember and celebrate the day Jesus entered into Jerusalem as Savior and King. As Jesus rode a donkey into the town of Jerusalem a large crowd gathered and laid palm branches and their cloaks across the road, giving Jesus royal treatment. The hundreds of people shouted "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!


If you want to read about it in the Bible, turn to Matthew 21:1-11


On the heels of Palm Sunday, as we begin this Holy Week, may we constantly be reminded of its significance and value for our lives today. That very important day in history, when Jesus began His journey towards the cross.


Maybe this year, when many of us are living in isolation and our lives look and feel very different, we will have time to think deeper thoughts about Easter, the real meaning of it and just what it all means in our own life.


Nothing, not physical separation nor a pandemic, can separate us from the love of Jesus Christ and the hope we share in Him. Christians celebrate Palm Sunday as a reminder of God's faithfulness. We are forever forgiven and eternally saved when we come to God through Christ. He made a way. We will celebrate who Jesus is - both then, as He rode into the city, and now, as He sits at the right hand of the Father. He is the way, He is my way, I hope you know Him as yours.
