Verse of the Day – April 9, 2017

Today is the beginning of Passion Week or Holy Week, which was the last week of Jesus’ earthly life. This week will be a special series on the events that took place during that time.

Today is Palm Sunday. This comes from Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem on a previously unridden donkey colt. Many Israelites were headed to Jerusalem at this same time for the Passover Festival. They celebrated Him with an impromptu parade, laying their cloaks and palm fronds on the road before Him. To compare it to the modern culture, they were rolling out the red carpet for Him. They praised Him as the Messiah, not actually understanding what that meant.

Take time this week to remember what Jesus went through during this Holy Week, over 2000 years ago, for OUR benefit!

Have a blessed & beautiful day!
