UPDATE APRIL 5, 2020
Tomorrow we as God’s people celebrate Palm Sunday, the door to the holiest week of our year.
As we begin our journey this week with our Lord, we are reminded that this Wednesday also begins the Jewish Passover.
The Passover is the sacred occasion when Jews celebrate the “passing over” of the angel of death and the glorious passing over of the people of God... from slavery to freedom.
In this holy week we remember our Lord’s rejection, betrayal, torture and death. Yet, as Christians we too celebrate a “passing over.” On Easter Sunday we celebrate the greatest passing over of all. We celebrate a passing from despair to victory, from bondage to freedom, from sorrow to joy... from death to life.
While we as your Pastors will sincerely miss celebrating this holy day with you in person, we do not miss the irony of the occasion. The backdrop of both of these stories is plagues, fear, suffering and death, the very atmosphere surrounding our whole world today.
YET THIS PALM SUNDAY WE REMEMBER...THIS IS THE GOD WE ARE TRUSTING TO DO IT AGAIN. Hallelujah! let us give Him our great praise this Palm Sunday. He hears our prayers, His arms are still opened wide to receive us and help us, He is indeed the King our world is waiting for.
Tune in to watch Pastor James once again this Palm Sunday at 10:00 a.m. on our YouTube channel!
Blessings to you All,
