John 11:56. Thus they were looking for Jesus, and saying to one another as they stood in the temple courts, “What do you think? That he wont come to the feast?”

Today is the day before Palm Sunday.  In the past I prepared by obtaining palm branches for our church to wave in celebration.  We don’t have access to them here.  But we still can wave our hands and rejoice.  On the day before our Lord’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem the people were all talking about Him.  They wondered if he would come.  They were sure He was the one who would save them com the tyranny of the Romans.  They wanted to crown Him their king instead of Caesar.  This added to the excitement of the Jewish people coming together to their temple in Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover, the celebration of their freedom from the Egyptians.  What better time to be free from the Romans than on this anniversary of their Egyptian freedom.  We have the opportunity of celebrating freedom from the sentence of death for our sins.  Our preparation for tomorrow should include a time of confessing our sins of commission and omission.  Our question is are we willing to admit our sinful actions, attitudes and inactions?  Let us prepare to rejoice tomorrow with free and clean hearts.
