March 25, 2018 The Gate of the Lord

This Sunday's worship services will include the procession of the palms as we shout "Hosanna!" to the King Jesus Christ. We'll hear from God's Word why into the Kingdom of God through Jesus Christ who is the Way, the Truth, and the Light. Our worship will prepare us for the events of that holy week when Jesus walked the final steps toward his death and resurrection, opening the way for our salvation.

Plan now to participate in a week of prayer and praise during this Holy Week, March 25-30.

WHY ATTEND HOLY WEEK SERVICES?

There's an interesting phenomenon concerning the week before Easter. Many churches will focus on Palm Sunday the week before Easter, and then go home and rest up for Easter. What is missing from this equation? The last days of Jesus' life on earth, including the Last Supper, the betrayal, the trial, the crucifixion and burial. In other words, much of the heart of the Gospel is missing from our teaching and worship.

That's why I encourage you to spend time this week reading those last chapters of the Gospel accounts of the life of Jesus - and why I encourage you to come and be part of our Holy (Maundy) Thursday at 7 p.m. and Good Friday worship service at 7:30 p.m. I encourage you to invite a neighbor, friend, or co-worker!

In Christ's Grace and Peace,

Pastor Bob

Psalm 118:1-2; 19-29
