“Stand Up” Palm Sunday Sermon

Sermon Notes

“Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it; as it is written: 

‘Do not be afraid, daughter of Zion.
Look, your king is coming,
    sitting on a donkey’s colt!’”              John 12: 14-15 NRSV

#1 Jesus sits up but ­­­­­­­­­in our midst not ‘Lording it over us’.

#2 Jesus sits up to live out God’s faithfulness and love.  This is another way of saying God is faithful to the Covenant God voluntarily makes with us.

#3 Jesus sits up to take on our suffering and death and to defeat these enemies with love and life.
