Palm Sunday. Eight days that changed the world!

Luke 9:51-56
The eight days, from Palm Sunday to Resurrection Sunday, have changed the course of not only world history, but the eternal destiny of all who have placed their faith in the Jesus who walked that course for us. Today, let’s review the first 5 days of the 8, to prepare our hearts for worship on Good Friday.
Heb. 12:1 Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
So let us know and walk with the Lord through the eight days of His passion, and like Him, steel our minds and lives like metal to pursue the will of the Father, in faith and trust.
