Every Sunday that we gather we celebrate the goodness of God. Today is a special day of celebration. It is Palm Sunday! This is the day that launches the Passion Week of Jesus. On the first day of that week Jesus entered Jerusalem to shouts of praise and a crowd desiring to make Him their King. But, the week that began with jubilation ended in deception, conspiracy, crucifixion and the death of our Lord. That wasn’t the end of this story. In fact, Jesus still became King, just a different kind of King. This morning the Apostle John points us to Jesus as King!
