Your attention please: Easter and Holy Week is still happening!
Today is commonly known as Palm Sunday, the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, greeted by worshippers waving palm branches and proclaiming him King of Israel! All four gospels record the event, each with a slightly different emphasis. Luke and John both record the response of the Pharisees to Jesus’ affect on the crowds.
But some of the Pharisees among the crowd said, “Teacher, rebuke your followers for saying things like that!”He replied, “If they kept quiet, the stones along the road would burst into cheers!”Luke 19:39-40
Then the Pharisees said to each other, “There’s nothing we can do. Look, everyone has gone after him!”John 12:19
That’s right! There is nothing anyone can do to keep Easter from coming! Jesus is alive and triumphant! If we don’t cry out, the rocks will. So, let’s shout out!
