Today we step into the Great Week of our Salvation in Christ. We journey forward and upward, rubbing shoulders with the characters in the Gospels, with the people of the passion. We set our face and voice and mind and heart towards Jerusalem…. Today the Lord Jesus asks you to come close to him. In a very special and intimate way, he invites you to spend the next seven days with him, moment by moment, as the tension builds towards his suffering and death and the joy explodes at his resurrection.
Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, during which we recall the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Today mark’s his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, riding on a donkey (an animal that symbolises peace) as prophesied in Zechariah 9.9 and born out in Matthew 21.5
