We are so glad that you have taken time out of your busy schedule to worship with us today. Today is Palm Sunday, one of the days leading up to Easter, when we remember Jesus entering Jerusalem.
Even though Jesus was the King of the Jews, he did not enter the city on a horse as a conquering king. Rather, he came in a humble fashion riding a donkey. Still the people cried out and praised him. Some put their cloaks on the road while other spread branches from the trees on the path. Together they cried out,
“Hosanna to the Son of David;
Blessed is He Who comes in the name of the Lord;
Hosanna in the highest!” (Matthew 21:9)
The people were glorifying God. Some of the Pharisees, seeing all this commotion, told Jesus to rebuke his disciples. Instead Jesus replied that “If they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.” (Luke 19:40)
These people that day were bring Glory to God, something that is not just for people of ancient times. We too have the opportunity and privilege to bring Glory to God. How, you may wonder, can I bring glory to God?
Today I will share how we can glorify God with our lives today and always.
Together for the Glory of God,
Pastor Stan Ponz
