365 Gratitude Project – Day 99: Palm Sunday

April 9, 2017

John 12: 12-13

12 The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. 13 They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,

“Hosanna![a]”

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”

“Blessed is the king of Israel!”


Today begins Holy Week, when we remember Jesus’ sacrifice, His gift to us that our sins might be washed clean through Him and be forgiven. Today we remember His arrival at Jerusalem, he came riding on a donkey and the people were so happy to see Him they lay palm fronds upon the path before Him that His feet not touch the earth and they praised Him and called Him King of Israel.

I’m grateful for what He said later in the same chapter: John 12: 46 “I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.” I need that light, His light, to guide my path and keep me safe.
