Assurance of Pardon:
Here the good news. As Jesus enters Jerusalem the crowds celebrate his arrival. But very soon the scene turns dark and religious leaders use the Temple for financial gain and others plot to kil Jesus. But God shows once again that the evil intent in the world is always overcome by the power, love, and grace of God. Even if our week has been difficult, we can celebrate and wave our hands in the air that God is victorious. Through Jesus Christ we are loved and forgiven. AMEN.
