On Palm Sunday, we commemorate Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem, an event that marks the beginning of the Holy Week leading up to His crucifixion and resurrection. This day serves as a powerful reminder of Jesus' humility and the true nature of His kingship. As the people waved palm branches and cried out, "Hosanna!" they recognized, even if only for a moment, that Jesus was indeed the King of kings and Lord of lords.
As followers of Christ, we are called to be missionaries and share the good news of Jesus' love and redemption with others. Our role is not only to invite people into our churches and communities but also to help them understand the true nature of Jesus' kingship — a kingship that transcends earthly power and authority, focusing instead on love, mercy, and sacrifice.
As we celebrate Palm Sunday, let us embrace our calling as missionaries and extend an invitation to those around us to experience the life-changing love of Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords. We must do this not only with our words but also with our actions, by living lives that reflect the values of Christ's kingdom: love, compassion, forgiveness, and humility.
In our efforts to share the good news, we should not be deterred by the preconceived ideas that people may have about Jesus. Instead, let us gently and patiently guide them to a deeper understanding of the true nature of His kingship. As we do this, we will play a part in helping others come to know Jesus as their Savior, the one who brings peace, reconciliation, and hope to a world in desperate need.
So, on this Palm Sunday and beyond, let us commit ourselves to being ambassadors for Christ, inviting others to experience the transformative power of His love and to join us in worshiping Jesus, the King of kings and Lord of lords.
