This Week For Sunday

This past Sunday was “Palm Sunday,” the Sunday we reflect on Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem.  As Jesus entered the city on a colt, the crowds shouted his praise.  The entire city was buzzing with news of this new King.  The Messiah had arrived! (Matthew 21:1-11)

The people had no idea what the week ahead held.  The same crowds that welcomed him, days later shouted for his crucifixion. The same city that broke out in celebration, broke out in rebellion demanding his death.  The same King they worshipped, they crowned with thorns and nailed to a cross.

The crowds didn’t know, but Jesus was well aware.  He knew their joyful cheers would become condemning jeers.  As the people laid down their coats, Jesus knew he would be laying down his life.  Yet, he still rode into the city.  “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” (Matthew 26:39)

As we prepare to celebrate the resurrection of Christ, consider all that he endured to offer us forgiveness and grace, to justify us and make us right with God.  I encourage you to listen to these songs as you reflect on the events of “Passion Week.”
