The Sunday Set-Up for April 13, 2014

We wave palms on Palm Sunday. Why? The palm branch was a national symbol and a typical way that kings were hailed and honored in Israel. Think of it like waving a national flag. The disciples welcomed Jesus in on Palm Sunday with great enthusiasm and patriotism. Of course we know that the events of that week would ultimately lead to the cross. Have you ever thought about what it means to welcome Jesus as King in your own life? How readily do we truly accept his rule in every area and endeavor of our lives? Join me this Sunday as we examine the meaning of Palm Sunday and how Jesus might more fully rule over our hearts as our great and welcome King.

Reading: Luke 19:28-44
