SERMON: “Palm Sunday Tears” (Luke 19:28-44)

TearsIn this sermon, I invite you to consider with me something that we can so easily overlook, when caught up in all the hullabaloo and celebration of Palm Sunday. While everyone was shouting His praises, what was that figure on the back of donkey, feeling as he entered though the Golden Gate of Jerusalem?

We know what was happening outside Garments are being thrown across the path of this donkey; Palm branches are being waved in praise; like a roll of thunder, the crowds start breaking forth in spontaneous shouts of praise and welcome! “Hosanna to the Son of David!” “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

We know what’s happening on the outside, but what’s going on on the inside? (Little did I know as I preached this sermon, “Palm Sunday Tears” tears were/would be shed on this day on the other side of the world, in Egypt, as two churches were bombed, killing 44 and injuring scores of others).

Hi. My Name is Wayne. If I were to introduce myself by what I have done, work-wise, I would have to introduce myself as a Preacher, a Pastor, a Family & Community Worker, a Student, an Air Traffic Controller, a Post Office Counter Assistant, a Mail Sorter, a Unit Trust Administration Officer, a Butchery Delivery Driver, a Teacher. These are some of the various positions I have held to-date over my lifetime. The periods I have occupied these roles for range from a few hours to a few years. More important than introducing myself by what I do (or have done), allow me rather to introduce myself by who I am. I am a Born Again Christian (who treasures his Lord), a Husband (who treasures his wife), a Dad (who treasures his sons) and a Minister of the Gospel (who treasures the Word of God). I pray that whatever is posted on this site will serve to bless and encourage you.
