Holy Week 2019
Palm Sunday starts Holy Week. On this day, Jesus enters Jerusalem after telling the disciples to go get a donkey. Jesus was in a for a bumpy entrance on an ungraceful creature, a choice that seems unlikely for a king. To honor Christ and to make the road smoother, people laid their clothing and palms on the road. It was what they had to offer to celebrate his arrival.
Jesus is trying to enter our lives also. He’s doesn’t always come in the loudest or most extravagant ways. But in whatever way God chooses, He offers us the opportunity to cease our resistance and to soften his road into our lives, our hearts and our spirits. It is a great time to examine our lives and find what offering of ourselves we can lay down before him.
