Sunday Musings | Palm Sunday

Today is the day - my Free Easter Week Facebook Series begins today and runs through Easter Sunday. I will be posting a new Bible journaling page and short devotional each day on my Facebook page. I would love for you to join me by either reading the post each day, creating a page based on the day’s scripture, sharing my post, and/or adding your page in the comments. I'm sharing today's page and devotional here, but you'll have to pop into Facebook to enjoy the rest of the series.

On Palm Sunday, we remember Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem as a great multitude spread their clothes and palm branches on the road before Him and cried out, “Hosanna in the highest.” He rode into the city on a young donkey that his disciples retrieved from a nearby village. This scene is recorded in all four gospels: Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-10, Luke 19:28-40, and John 12:12-16.

But long before this day that began what we now call Holy Week, it was prophesied in Zechariah 9:9 that the King would come “humble and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.” In fact, Jesus fulfilled hundreds of prophesies recorded in the Old Testament. As we head into this week, let’s marvel at the realization of this prophecy and the many others that foretold of the Messiah, and let us proclaim with the multitudes, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”

  1. As a child we were always given full palm leaves to wave as entering the church, now in lock down life, we just watch from our computer screens as the minister waves his single palm leaf.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
