Tragedy or Triumph?

Apr 2, 2023    Mike Osthimer

Palm Sunday is a great reminder of that God is in control and that His timing is absolutely perfect in human history. God's perfect timing does two things for us that we want to keep in mind as we study His Word today: 

1. It grows our faith as we are forced to wait and trust in God and 

2. It makes certain that He, and He alone, gets the glory and praise for pulling us through. 

Psalm 31:15 reminds us, “My future is in your hands.” 


Today we celebrate what is known around the world as Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter when Jesus made His triumphal entry into Jerusalem, presenting Himself openly as the King of the Jews. Palm Sunday is the beginning of the last week of Jesus first coming as He completes His mission, to live a perfect sinless life then go to the Cross in our place securing eternal life for all who come to Him by faith. 

The last week of Jesus life is known as the Passion week as it deals with Jesus suffering. All that He endured so that you and I might have eternal life.
