Worship Sermon Series – Lenten Season 2020
Week 6 “With Passion”
Scripture: Matthew 21:1-11
Our tradition is to wave palms, cry, “Hosanna!” and give thanks for the “One who comes in the name of the Lord!” Today, we reenact a profoundly exciting and joyful event that carried Jesus into the hardest and most painful part of his journey, a journey that ends with God making all things new. Christians call these events of Jesus’ last week “The Passion,” because of his great trials and suffering, his passionate pleading with God to spare him this pain, and his ultimate willingness to endure great wounds and the cross for the sake of us all. This service is a way of retelling the deepest and most profound story of the depths of betrayal and suffering, leading to a miracle no one saw coming.
