“Hosanna: Lord, save us now!” This is a cry ringing out from many faithful (and even not-so-faithful) people in our world today. With the outbreak of a global pandemic, our society seeks deliverance from all the perils and uncertainties in the world around us. Yet, even dangers such as viruses, a faltering economy, or even war are all but symptoms of the far greater plague on mankind which is sin. Sin rips us away from life and casts us into death; it seeks to separate us from our loving God and Father. The monstrous presence of sin is something no amount of saving, quarantining, or discipline could ever hope to overcome and so we call out for rescue. To that end, God the Father sends forth His only begotten Son.
Only Jesus is the answer to those villains who are seeking our very soul. Jesus has come to save us now. Wave your palm branches for Him alone. “Hosanna! Lord, Deliver Us!” He is present always to save us – even as things look most uncertain. We in the church are blessed in times of trial to share this good word with our neighbors in peril
The celebration of Palm Sunday is a bold proclamation in the face of sin and death that our Lord still comes to deliver His people!
