April 5, 2020 – Palm Sunday
Day 20 of the Coronavirus Shut Down
Greetings to Friends and Family of Hallie and Zion UMC,
Today is Palm Sunday and following is a portion of the story from Mark 11:7-10. Jesus enters Jerusalem and the stage is being set for his journey to the cross.
7 When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it. 8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. 9 Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, “Hosanna!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” 10 “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
The crowds were shouting and waving palm branches to honor Jesus and His entrance to Jerusalem. I suppose it was nice and Jesus probably smiled. But, Jesus has his eyes already on the cross and what lay before him. He moved faithfully forward because this is what his calling required. This coming week what will your calling be? During this COVID-19 time, let me encourage you to be faithful in doing right and noble acts. During these days, it is ok to have nice things and times of joy. But, let us remain diligent in moving forward in responsibility and purpose. Keep practicing the guidelines to fight this COVID-19 virus. Keep encouraging and helping others in their journey. Keep the faith, share God’s love.
Enjoy “Acts of Faith,” a song composed by Dan Lea and sung by Acoustic Grace.
