Palm Sunday @ Home
Good morning, church. It’s Palm Sunday, when we join with the crowd that welcomed King Jesus into Jerusalem. Maybe you can’t pluck a palm branch from a nearby tree, but you can lift your hands in praise. So raise your hands to God and your heart along with them!

Jesus Rules over Disease and Death (Mark 5:21-43)
The Lord’s Supper (Be sure to gather enough bread and juice for everyone participating.)
Read: Mark 14:1-21
The Lord’s Supper reminds us that we’re all equal at the foot of the cross. That night in the upper room, Jesus was the center of attention. The next morning, all eyes were on Him as He was lifted up to die. The cross is the altar and pulpit of God’s love. Christ preached God’s love from that pulpit and laid down His life on that altar. We’re all equal at the foot of the cross. There the sinless Saviour was sacrificed for sinners such as you and I. On the cross He takes His rightful place above us and we take our rightful place beneath Him. Suspended between heaven and earth, Jesus hung in the gap between us and God, receiving the wrath that we rightly deserved. As Christ served sinners at the Last Supper, so He served sinners on the cross. He went all the way to the cross so you can go all the way to heaven. You should be glad for what He did, because He did it for you.
