RETROSPECT: 7 LESSONS FROM THE PALM

Hey y’all, did you enjoyed your Palm Sunday? Yes I did though we didn’t go through the whole cutting of palm trees to hang at the entrance of the door at my church but it was duly recognized and the service went in that direction. During the cause of the day, our fast-becoming-co-author wrote out something on his way back from a mission he had gone over the weekend. I decided to share it this morning… Be blessed.

Haven said that, this week, we are going to be doing a lot of reflections on the significance of Jesus’ death and ressurection on the cross because of the Easter season. Stay tuned 🙂

24th of February 2013; 14:25 CAT; Popoola Oluwatobi wrote I’m on my way back to Abuja now, I had such a fulfilling weekend. There is no better way to invest in one’s life than using it to add value to others. So I thought I should quickly send you this before I close my eyes. (Don’t worry, I’m not the one driving).

Today is palm sunday, and while I was journeying to Akure from Ekiti this morning, I was meditating on that historic triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. There are 7 things a day as this brings to our remembrance:

          #1. It reminds us of our freedom. “You shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them and bring them to me” – Matthew 21:2

#2. It reminds us of our authority. “And if any man says ought unto you, ye shall say, the Lord has need of them; and straight way he will send them.” – Matthew 21:3

#3. It reminds us of His provision. “Saying unto them,Go into the village…and you shall find…” – Matthew 21:2

#4. It reminds us of our duty. “And the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them” – Matthew 21:6

#5. It reminds us of our due worship. “And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way…” – Matthew 21:8

#6. It reminds us of our mandate. “And the multitudes cried… and all the city was moved”. – Matthew 21:9&10

#7. It reminds us of our purity. “And Jesus went into the temple of God and cast out all them that sold and bought…” – Matthew 21:12

That’s a handful! Beyond the fronds, do look into the hidden truth of Palm Sunday. Digest the lessons, and remain ever blessed.
