Who are you going to sign with? part II (John 12:12-19)

Pastor Aaron Ude, March 20, 2016
Part of the Palm Sunday series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

This morning in our Scripture readings we have seen who and what our God is and what He has to offer. We can see what He has to offer, as the prophet Zechariah points out, by the fact that Christ comes riding into Jerusalem, lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of donkey. What we can learn from Him riding in such a manner on the first day of the celebration of the Passover? We can learn that Christ did not come to gain earthly wealth for Himself or for His people. We can learn that Christ did not come to gain earthly glory for Himself or for His people. He came to give Himself for His people! We can learn that He loves us more and He has more to offer than all the false American gods. (rest of sermon is available in pdf or mp3 on sermon page)

John 12:12-19

12On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. 14And Jesus, when he had found a young ass, sat thereon; as it is written, 15Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt. 16These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him. 17The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record. 18For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle. 19The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him. (KJV)
