Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday is one of my favorite Sundays of the year. Each year I am reminded that the crowd that praises Christ on Sunday will want him dead on Friday. I am a member of that same crowd. It is always a sobering and necessary reminder of why I need Easter, and it is a perfect beginning to Holy Week.

This Holy Week, I get to preach a homily during one of our evening services at Redeemer, which has me thinking about the last sermon I preached on Palm Sunday 2009. I prefaced the sermon by saying I was preaching a sermon I needed for myself. All these years later, I still need it. I hope it can be a blessing to you as you begin your Holy Week.
