Palm Sunday: It's Not What You Think!*


Have you ever wondered why the crowds, welcoming Jesus with palm branches and outstretched robes on Palm Sunday, later shouted "Crucify him” on Good Friday? The hosannas sung to Jesus as He rode upon a donkey were shouts of hope raised to an expected king who would deliver Israel from the oppression of Rome. When Jesus did not fulfill their idea of the perfect savior, the crowds had no use for Him, and...

were quick to send him to His death.

Make sure your Easter message portrays the true Jesus! If you are planning on presenting a Messiah built from your own cultural, political, and ideological perceptions you are guaranteed to give the audience false hope. Jesus came to do His Father's work, and commanded us to go and make disciples of all nations. This is not an option for a select few; it’s a mandate for all of us. When you paint a Messiah figure different than what is found in the Bible, you create a man-made version of Jesus. When this man-made Jesus does not fit in our circumstances, we lose hope and our faith is shipwrecked.

This Easter Sunday, forget about growing your church. Forget about getting more money so you can roll out your million dollar building project! Forget about adding state of the art music equipment or facilities to cater to church members! Jesus alone is all-sufficient. His word will not return void. He does not need all these earthly trappings in order to save a broken heart!

Easter service is the perfect time to portray the real Jesus, and to encourage everyone to obey the commandment to spread His gospel to the ends of the earth. When your life has been changed by such a profound and sacrificial free gift, you will be eager to share it!
