Welcoming All, Empowered by Christ, Sent Forth to Serve

April 14, 2019 message: “When Jesus Surprises You”

Jesus’ triumphal entry wasn’t very “triumphant” at all, except for the fact that he was fulfilling the prophecy of Zechariah. Coming into Jerusalem on a donkey rather than a horse was a sign of who he was and how he would rule as King. Jesus continues to surprise us as “the man who would be king” coming in humility and peace.

This is the sixth message in the series, “Shadow Savior: Not the Savior You Want, but the Savior You Need.” It is based on Matthew 21: 1-11, “The Triumphal Entry.” Today’s reading starts at the beginning of the video. To read Pastor Mary’s Palm Sunday message, click here.
