We are continuing Jesus’ 15 mile journey from Ephraim to Jerusalem for his final observance of Passover. Jesus and his disciples arrive on Saturday at the home of Simon in the village of Bethany for a meal. The guest for the meal include Lazarus, the man Jesus had recently raised from the dead! During the meal Lazarus’ sister, Mary, anoints Jesus’ feet with an expensive perfume, wiping it on Jesus’ feet with her hair. Wow! What an evening!
The following day, Sunday, Jesus makes his way into Jerusalem with an enthusiastic greeting from its people. Clothes were laid in his path, palm branches were waved, and the people sang his praises! Jerusalem came alive with the celebration of the arrival of Jesus!
As we pass through this weekend, I ask that you join with our congregation as we retrace the steps of Jesus. Think about his journey. Try to imagine the emotions of Jesus. Try to paint a mental picture in your mind of these events. Thank him, praise him, and walk with him!
Our weekend worship services to help remember these events will be:
”Pursuing The Heart Of God”
Saturday, April 1, 6:00 PM
Sunday, April 2, 10:00 AM
