It would have felt like a normal Monday. People still would have gone to work. Students would still be in school. Markets would still have been open and purchases being made. There was nothing unusual about it. The sun came up, the sun went down, and another day was complete. But something interesting had just happened the day before. A peculiar scene at the entrance to the city. An experience many would not have forgotten quickly.
The entry of one lone man seemed to have been a spectacle. Crowds had formed. Praises were exclaimed. Homes were emptied. Palm branches and robes were laid out. As a single man rode a humble donkey right down the main avenue of the city. People praised Him, shouting “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!”It was something those who were there would have told for the rest of their lifetime. But then Monday came…
This weekend is Palm Sunday. The day where Christian celebrate and remember Jesus’ triumphal entry. It is a time to recall and remember the humility and Kingship of our Savior. Yet so often the week between Palm Sunday and Easter morning is routine for me. Monday morning comes and instead of refocusing on Jesus, the distractions of the day gain my attention. If you are like me, I invite you to take a few minutes each day remind yourself by using this Holy Week Devotional. It runs from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday.
I hope you’ll join me for 8 days seeking to focus on and remember Jesus as the humble King this coming week. As always, be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day.
Until Next Time…

This is a great reminder to refocus on Jesus during Holy Week and to remember His humility and Kingship. Thank you for sharing the Holy Week Devotional as a tool to help us do so.
