Importance of Palm Sunday apparent

Christians around the world celebrate Palm Sunday today. This is the day on which Christians commemorate Christ's triumphant entry into Jerusalem, which occurred the week before his death and resurrection. For many Christian churches, Palm Sunday also is known as Passion Sunday. Regardless of the name, this day marks the beginning of Holy Week and concludes with Easter Sunday. The biblical account of Palm Sunday can be found in Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:28-44; and John 12:12-19.

Learn to depend on God for help

Like many of you, I have a GPS hanging from the front windshield of my car to help me navigate from one point to the next. A funny thing happened to it recently. I had, as the voice setting, a woman with a British accent. I don't understand why, but a couple of weeks ago the voice quit working properly. All of a sudden, it sounded like a man speaking in slow motion. It was like an old audio tape that was played too slowly. It was very odd.

Love others as the Lord first loved us

Prepare now for God's return

A zeal to do God's will

The lyrics from one of my favorite Mississippi Mass Choir songs, entitled "It Remains to Be Seen," say, "The safest place in the whole wide world is in the will of God. Trials come great and small just stay in the will of God. Come what may from day to day keep the faith and be still. It remains to be seen what God can do for the one who submits to His will."
