To the Cross, part 6: To Reign (Palm Sunday)

Jesus comes to Jerusalem fulfilling prophecy, entering humbly on a donkey’s colt, yet as the King of Israel “in the name of the Lord”. He comes to be lifted up in glory on the Cross in order to cast out “the ruler of this world” and draw all people to Himself. Church, journeying with Jesus we are called to rejoice greatly as our King comes with salvation. Main Text: John 12:20-43.

From Series: " Lent: To the Cross "

Lent is the season of preparation for Christ’s death on the cross for our sins and for the sins of the world. During Lent we follow Jesus as He makes His way back to Jerusalem, the Holy city, the center of the delivered promises of the covenant, the Land, and God’s presence with His people in His Temple. During Lent we see Jesus making things right, setting things in order, from healings to clearing out the Temple courtyard, God’s Kingdom comes dramatically in and through Jesus Christ. This is where God’s people reject His only Son, and where Jesus does His proper work of salvation, dieing for all sin. Lent ends with the wages of sin, death, but the death that pays for all sin for all time. But this is not the end, Easter is just 3 days away.
