Greetings to all who worship with us on this Palm Sunday. As we picture our Lord riding into Jerusalem, we also see into His near future: His last supper with His disciples, His suffering and death on the cross. But beyond that, we see the empty tomb, proving His triumph over death and the devil for our sins. Let us ponder these things as we go about our lives this Holy week.
