Topic(s): Palm Sunday
Hymns: 161, 162, 160, 306, 725
Pre-Service Prayer:

O Lord God, we come before You this day with joyous praise, acknowledging Your dear Son to be our Savior and King! Feed our minds with the truths of Your Word. Fill our hearts with the certainty of Your love. Move us to follow Jesus’ example of humility and service here in this world, as we await the glories of heaven—promises of Your grace. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Pre-Service Devotion: 

Psalm 22

First Reading: 

Deuteronomy 32:36-39

Moses foretold that God’s people would prove themselves unfaithful to Him by serving false gods, which would not help them, but rather would only hurt them. God here announces that He is the only true God, Who is in control of all things!

Second Reading: 

Luke 19:29-40

Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday stood in stark contrast to His walk through Jerusalem’s street on His way to Calvary five days later. Here, however, in fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy Jesus came as the promised King in the name of the Lord!
