This coming Sunday is remarkable for a few reasons.
First, it is Palm Sunday. Which means it is the beginning of a week of remembering the most important events in the history of the world: the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, his last meal with his disciples, his death at the hands of sinful men as the result of a sham sentence in a kangaroo court, his burial by those who loved him, and his resurrection from the dead just three days later. All of it for the salvation and rescue of the world.
Second, it is a Baptism Sunday. This last Sunday we shared in the communion table, reminding us of that last meal which Jesus shared with his disciples. This coming Sunday, we celebrate baptism, which displays most of the rest of what happened during Holy Week. “Or have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death? For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives. Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as he was.” (Romans 6:3-5, NLT) So come and be a part of a few people walking through the waters, and the story of Jesus.
Finally, it is another Sunday in the Whole Story sermon series. And this week we will study what is likely Paul’s happiest letter of the thirteen that we have contained within our Bibles. And why is he so happy? Well, you’ll have to read and study it to find out. This very personal and warm letter will only take you about fourteen minutes to read in one sitting. To aid you in your study, check out the resource page on this letter that The Bible Project has produced.
It is going to be another wonderful Sunday at Calvary.
I hope to see you there.
