Hi Redeemer Families,
The Sunday before Easter is Palm Sunday where we celebrate when Jesus entered Jerusalem. Many of God’s people traveled to Jerusalem for Passover. Jesus rode in on a donkey, and people laid branches and their robes on the ground in front of Him. The people welcoming Jesus into Jerusalem believed He was the promised Messiah, but they expected Him to overthrow Roman oppression and set up an earthly throne. Jesus sent a different message.
As you prepare for and celebrate Easter, help kids connect the dots between God’s promises of a Messiah and Jesus’ coming. Help them understand why Jesus came: to save the world from sin!
Here are some questions for your family this week:
- The people thought Jesus was coming to rule as an earthly leader, but He was coming to save them from their sin. How is this even better than than what they expected?
- The people shouted “Hosanna” and praised Jesus. What can we do to praise Jesus today?
Blessings on your week,
