As we gather today on Palm Sunday, I am reminded of the way Jesus made his entrance into Jerusalem. Most of us know this passage as the Triumphal Entry, when people laid their cloaks on the ground as Jesus made His entrance on a colt. The significance of laying down one’s cloak symbolized honoring one’s presence. How are we laying down our “cloaks” today? Do you come with a troubled heart? Be encouraged:   Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. (James 1:2-4). Do you come with an anxious heart? Be anxious about nothing, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, surpassing all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil 4:6) Do you come feeling lost? 11For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future (Jer 29:11) Whatever your situation, let’s come boldly into His presence today Goodtree. As we enter into His sanctuary, may His presence fill your hearts. May you leave this place renewed and refreshed by His Word and His Spirit. Observe my Sabbaths and have reverence for my sanctuary. I am the LORD. (Lev 19:30)
